The Big Yes Push - May 17th

LGBTinC and friends hosted our last event for Marriage Equality on Sunday 17th May at Cavan Town Square from 3pm-5pm. Despite the rain, loads of people turned up to help us push Yes over the line.

Marriage Equality Photo Booth, Saturday April 11th

LGBTinC and Friends launched our campaign for Marriage Equality on Sat 11th April at Cavan Town Square.

This event was open to everyone and we invited people to participate in our “I’m Voting Yes” campaign. It was a great opportunity for people to show their support for Marriage Equality by having their photograph taken in the "Vote Yes Cavan" photo-booth. These photos are going to become part of our official campaign poster, which will be launched shortly. The posters will be displayed all around County Cavan in due course.

We had a brilliant response to the photo-booth. 150 photographs were taken. That's one photo every 3 minutes! And most people availed of the opportunity to take away a framed print of their pic. All of the photos are on our Facebook page so take a look. Tag yourself and share, share, share. Vote Yes Photo Album

Our campaign posters were a big hit.

SOSAD Community Information Day - Monday 8th September

SOSAD (Save Our Sons And Daughters) Cavan hosted a community information day on Monday 8th September in The Farnham Arms Hotel from 12 - 3 pm. The aim was to help promote the different agencies and groups in the town who work to help others. This event coincided with World Suicide Prevention week to get people talking openly about mental health in 2014.
There are many local agencies all working to help others from the area and the hope is that this event will be the start of further and better collaboration between all local groups and charities. The event helped highlight exactly what each group or agency does to help others and hopefully will build a better and stronger network of agencies in the community.
This was a wonderful opportunity for people to come and visit the showcase and see what all local agencies do and how they support local people.
LGBTinC were delighted to have a stand at the event and we would like to thank the SOSAD team for inviting us and for organising the day.
If you would like to find out more about SOSAD go to their website.

Summer BBQ - Sunday 27th July

To celebrate Pride season, LGBTinC hosted a Summer Barbecue Event at the Cavan Canoe Club.

It was a joint event with the Wet & Wild LGBT Sports Group. We spent four hours kayaking around the lakes. The guided tour was really informative and interesting and we got to paddle through some beautiful scenery. When we made it back to shore we were starving for the BBQ. Special thanks to our mega chef Gerard for the fantastic food as always and for supplying the bbq equipment, tables, chairs and sound system. Also, a big thank you to Sean and Anthony for all of their help and coordination and for welcoming the guests while we were out on the water. Thank you to everyone else who helped with the set up and clean up. It was a team effort, but a very special thank you has to go to Vincent for organising everything so brilliantly, adding flair and making the day really successful and memorable. Finally, a big thank you to everyone at the Cavan Canoe Club, for their warm welcome and for the use of their excellent facilities. We look forward to going back for more kayaking very soon!

LGBTinC has changed the day and venue of our weekly meetings.

We have found a fantastic new space to hold our weekly meetings. It's centrally located in Cavan town, is easily accessible and offers plenty of social outlets nearby for after the meetings. We have tea/coffee facilities, comfy couches, computers and even a pool table, so there's something there for everyone. We will be operating our meetings as a "drop-in" service, so come along and pop in for a coffee or a game of pool or a chat...

This drop in service is on Thursdays now instead of Tuesdays, from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

Give us a call on 086 249 1821 or email us and we'll give you directions. We hope that this change of venue will encourage more people to join our group, so spread the word.
