International Fund for Ireland “Peace of Mind” Project
The Peace of Mind project is funded by the International Fund for Ireland and has been running since June 2016. The project has already engaged a wide number of individuals and groups in social and upskilling activities both locally and on a cross border basis. Over 100 children have already taken part in the project’s activities which included the very successful summer camp in July 2016, a trip to Kilinkere Farm in August 2016 and the ‘Spooky Drummers’ workshops which took place at Halloween that year. ‘Peace of Mind’ ran until the end of 2017 and was particularly focused on positive mental health in the community and networking groups from Clones and Lisnaskea and the formation of sustainable relations that will continue after the life of the project.
Since June, The Clones Men’s Shed have partnered with the Lisnaskea shed for numerous workshops and indeed members of both sheds have travelled together to the National Men’s Shed Conference in Belfast- ‘Sheds Without Borders’ in October. A very successful International Rural Women’s Day Event was held in October in Canal Stores, with over 50 ladies in attendance. Connections between the parenting groups, parent and toddler groups and women’s groups is also ongoing.
The Project was launched by IFI Board member Allan McAdam on Thursday 17th of November before ‘The Decade of Commemoration’ Talk in the Cassandra Hand Centre.
