Comhairle na nÓg

Revision Guide launch GCC

Who we are and what we do:

Comhairlí na nÓg are local ‘youth councils’ for young people 12-18 years in Galway City and County.  Both City and County Comhairlí have youth committees whose membership represent the views and opinions of their peers.

Our aim:

To support young people’s right to have his or her voice heard by being involved in the development of local services and policies, to have a voice on the services, policies and issues that affect them in their local area.

Our activities:

We co-ordinate both the City and County Comhairlí in partnership with Galway City Council and Galway County Council.
We also support local Comhairle na nÓg youth groups in the county in Tuam, Loughrea, Ballinasloe, Oranmore and Clifden (in conjunction with Forum Clifden).
