    George. Ann Marie Brophy and Thurles Library are to be commended on this brillient idea of the “Volunteer Management Course” I can’t believe its free. One would never get such an opportunity here. I am very interested in the outcome of this course and how Ann Marie got it set up. This is the type of course we would love to set up for some of our members. Any ideas George.

  • Hi Katie,
    Ann Marie is indeed a very capable organiser. I have taken the liberty of passing you email address to her. I am sure she will take time to reply to your query shortly.
