Michael Ring TD, Minister for Rural and Community Development, has expressed his delight at the response by communities in Kilkenny to The Big Hello! initiative which he launched last month. The Big Hello! supports communities to host events in their local area in order to strengthen community ties and help tackle the problem of social isolation.
So far, 27 The Big Hello! events will take place in the county over the forthcoming May Bank Holiday Weekend (4-6 May). Check out the events in your area
