Youth cafe needed in Naas area

The Co.Kerry mobile cafe

A youth cafe is needed in the greater Naas area to bolster facilities for young people.

Sinn Fein councillor Sorcha O’Neill says facilities are necessary in areas like Ballymore, Sallins, Kilcullen, Kill and Johnstown.

“A cafe cannot be provided in every area but a bus would go some way towards addressing the defecit of youth services,” she said. Cllr O’Neill said Kerry Youth Services have  converted a lorry into a mobile youth cafe with free WiFi, laptops, Gaming consoles and kettle facilities.

She wants Kildare County Council to provide €90,000 to do this.
