Following an unsuccessful appeal for summer jobs for Ukrainian teenagers in Greystones, Tiglin CEO Phil Thompson and Chairman Aubrey McCarthy came up with a novel idea to provide employment, integration and community development opportunities.
Speaking today Aubrey said ” We sourced a cabin for ice cream sales and placed it on the grounds of Tiglin’s “Rise at the Cove” cafe.
The facility is manned by Ukrainian teenagers which I might add serves the best ‘99 in Wicklow . This is more than just a job, this is a sense of belonging and a great way for the youngsters to meet the community who welcomed them into the town of Greystones.
It’s been a pleasure to see young people from Ukraine learn and engage with the people of Greystones along side the residents of Carraig Eden.
