Childcare

The development of local, affordable and accessible community childcare services is integral to IRD Duhallow’s approach

The development of local, affordable and accessible community childcare services is integral to IRD Duhallow’s approach to the renewal of rural areas over the last number of years. The success of this strategy can be seen when young families are able to remain and live in Duhallow due to the provision of these local and affordable services. Duhallow has seven community childcare facilities which were supported by IRD Duhallow in their development; continue to operate at full capacity. It is a continuing aim of these childcare facilities to ensure that affordable and appropriate access to childcare is facilitated for disadvantaged parents. Below is a list of the childcare facilities supported by IRD Duhallow.
