Youth Initiative Project Wins Prize

Maynooth St Patricks Parade2

This years St Patrick's day parade in Maynooth was joined by 'Meanparg' the friendly giant.  The 12 foot high puppet wowed the spectators of Maynooth village and won First Prize! 

Service users with St John of God Kildare services in both Pathways, (a community based day service) and Genil (training service) helped to create and build the giant puppet thanks to a grant from Léargas
