About the Charities

Errigal Truagh Special Needs

Errigal Truagh Special Needs was founded in 2001 after a group of parents and family members of adults with physical & intellectual disabilities from the parish of Truagh, Co. Monaghan came together to create a social club for people with special needs.

Since their founding they developed their own purpose-built building that offers a daily respite service for their adult members. It now staffs several full-time employees, hosts a multi-sensory room and is complete with a transportation service for members to and from the day centre.

Daily activities include:

  • Numeracy & Literacy
  • Computers
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Music and Drama
  • Physical Exercise.
  • Horticulture
  • Special Olympics
  • Road Bowling
  • Swimming
  • Going out for lunch once a week.
  • Pottery
  • Day Trips

The ethos of their centre is to provide a home from home setting where they nurture the ability, not the disability of their service members.
