Inchicore youth service steps up a gear with new Renault minibus

THE Inchicore Core Youth Service stepped up a gear this week, after receiving the keys to a brand new 171 Renault Trafic minibus.

Renault Ireland, in partnership with the Irish Youth Foundation, handed over the keys to the nine-seater minibus to ICYS, to help get their new outdoor programmes on the road.

Previously known as St Michael’s, ICYS was established in 1986 in response to poverty, and a lack of recreational opportunities and substance misuse in the youth population of St Michael’s estate and the wider community.

The minibus will help transport youth service members to activities outside the area.

Karla Clifford, Brand Communications Manager, Renault Ireland, said: “We are thrilled to be able to support such a great organisation which does amazing work with the young people of Inchicore. We hope the minibus will help in getting the new programme on the road.”

Thomas McCarthy, Community Youth Worker, Core Youth Service, said: “On behalf of the young people of Inchicore, we are delighted to receive the Renault Trafic minibus from Renault Ireland.

"This bus better enables us to respond to the needs of young people, and will help us to develop our outdoor educational programmes to engage more young people in new experiences. We would also like to thank the Irish Youth Foundation for helping to make this happen.”
