COMMUNITY SERVICES AT CUMANN NA DAOINE seem to have been saved following agreement between its board and the owners of its League of Cross base. Speculation had been rife in recent weeks that hugely popular resource centre was to close and services more or less dispatched to Midleton. However following intervention from local politicians, in tandem with Cork East TD David Stanton, agreement in principal to retain the centre in Youghal was reached at a meeting last week. It is understood that the finer detail were agreed at a subsequent meeting and the centre will remain open pending ratification. This is expected to occur in the coming days. An optimistic Deputy Stanton has observed that Youghal may furthermore enjoy the benefit of strong SECAD presence in the town alongside Cumann na Daoine.
