Ukrainian teenagers play it cool at the Cove

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.
