I joined Comhairle na nOg (CNN) in October 2018 after the AGM in Cork City Hall. Truthfully, I only went to it to avoid school but then started going to the meetings. Six months in and I’ve learned loads about what Comhairle na nOg does, similar Youth Services in Cork and the importance of biscuit breaks.
A woman from Jigsaw came into my school and spoke to us about the purpose and vision of Jigsaw. It’s an organisation dedicated to community-based support for the mental health of young people. They work all over Ireland and here in Cork they’re based in Wandesford Quay off of Washington St.
