Monaghan Comhairle na nOg PPN Consultation

On March 4th the Monaghan Comhairle na nOg attended a consultation by the Public Participation Network and helped in the development of the Community Wellbeing Vison for Co. Monaghan.

The group engaged in a number of different topics and themes which included:

  • Health (physical and mental)
  • Economy and Resources
  • Social and Community development
  • Participation, Democracy and Good Governance
  • Values culture and meaning
  • Environment and sustainability


The young people discussed the different themes with people from the community. They recognised some of the following; inadequate mental health services for young people within Co. Monaghan, keeping events such as the GAA ulster final in Clones and the lack of transports/bus services in South Monaghan. They also identified facilities within their own communities that are available such as: youth clubs, libraries and sport facilities.

Monaghan Comhairle had a very enjoyable evening and were delighted to be able to give a young person perceptive to the consultation.
