Service: Community Development
Comharchumann Inis Mór, established in 1991, provides a wide range of services to the islanders, including administration of a home for the elderly, running a re-cycling centre, developing leisure activities, setting up a diesel station, and support for local businesses. It also lobbies government for better infrastructure and other improvements. It is the focal point of the community’s activities.
The co-op employs three full-time staff; a further 50 are involved in running the various activities and centres. Údarás has been a major partner in the co-operative since its foundation and has assisted with an annual administration grant, with training programmes, and with Research and Development support.
