The directory came about as a result of discussions during meetings of the Newtownmountkennedy Local Education Committee (LEC).
The LEC was formed under the remit of Catherine Hurley, Home School Community Liaison Programme. It aims to address issues in the community that impinge on children's learning and their lives in the community. Sub-groups of the committee are progressing work on important local issues by working closely in co-operation and partnership with parents, parish, school, pupils and community agencies.
The directory aims to provide an overview of services available locally in Newtownmountkennedy and in nearby towns.
