Get the latest on community development here in Ireland - and abroad

Our latest edition is PACKED with social inclusion and community development news you won't read anywhere else:
LEAD STORY: Early childhood intervention works, according to newly published evidence from Dublin.

MEASURING POVERTY: Ever wondered how poverty is measured and how who gets what? Plenty debate inside the covers here, with Pobal and Truth Haase contributing to a debate begun by Ian Dempsey of West Cork Development Partnership.

FROM BRUSSELS: Ben Panter reports back on how and why we must respond to the humanitarian issue of refugees seeking sanctity. Meanwhile, the EU continues to break international law.

CULTURAL RIGHTS: Ray Lucey went along twice - he volunteered as well as reported - from inside Dublin's only cinema geared specifically towards people who are homeless.

CO-OPS: You'll never bake alone! And how to resurrect clubs that faced the axe. Plus Utopia in Ireland – it’s possible, claims Joe Leddin.

EQUALITY in Monaghan in 1955 is compared to equality today - it seems that only Travellers are worse off than they were six decades ago. Hats off to Monaghan County Council for an utterly unique angle on the struggle for equality.


And HORACE is back, with an answer to the Irish issue of who he should pay for his water!
