One of the last events of Donegal Youth Council was the Showcase Celebration Event – an event we worked on during the summer. It took place in the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny on September 15th and was attended by proud parents and guardians, project workers and funders. It was opened officially by Donegal Cathaoirleach Seamus O’Domhnaill.
The Showcase covered all of the work the Donegal Youth Councillors did over their term. It was an emotional night, Youth Councillors each took turns to share their favourite memories and what the experience on the Youth Council meant to them.

As part of my activity in Donegal Youth Council, I got to travel all across Donegal with Carlyn, my project coordinator. Monthly, in Donegal Town, Inishowen, Letterkenny, Dungloe & Ballybofey, we met with the young councillors to discuss matters of importance to them. Here are a few snaps from the road ♥
In the beginning of October, my family came visit. We had a lovely time exploring Dublin & Letterkenny for a week. Happy days! The weather was on our side – sunny all the trip ♥
Hello everyone, Maria G talking. We have been a bit busy these days, so many things happening! First of all, I want to mention the EVS initial training, which took place in July (I know it’s long ago). We spent 4 days in Dublin and we met other volunteers from all around Ireland, it was class! We were able to share our experiences and it also helped us to set some goals for this year and to be a bit more conscious of where we are and why.
Last week we went to the Time To Move event in Sligo with Kasia. We had to do a presentation in front of everyone about the benefits of being an EVS and our personal point of view. We were so nervous (specially me) but we were great. I’m so proud of us!
Many things have been going on in YIC as well. We have been promoting our work at the Motley Crow and also in LYIT.
That’s all folks! I’ll post again soon. I’ll just add a picture I took on my way back home, sunset time!
PS: I love walking through fallen leaves, it feels like walking the red carpet.
