If clubs are interested in getting involved as a group contact Louth Volunteer Centre at 041 9809008. Members can get involved as individuals by applying online atwww.volunteerlouth.ie/fleadh or if anyone is in the vicinity of Louth there are forms in all Louth County Libraries and in Louth Volunteer Offices in Drogheda and Dundalk.

Louth Volunteer Centre suggest that if members are doing their own thing and applying individually then they could still put their club name in the other information box which would mean they could still keep people as a block in the want and also that we can report on the contribution of the club to the Fleadh Volunteer Programme.
