What it means to us:
Cairde Meitheal Mara is our new network for existing friends, supporters and stakeholders who have helped the organisation achieve all it has over the past 22 years.  With a view to our long-term plan to develop a unique maritime heritage and activities centre for Cork City and Harbour, we have set up Cairde Meitheal Mara to provide a structured network of support. We anticipate needing contributions in many different forms; from professional advice and expertise, voluntary support and labour, to networking support, advocacy, fundraising and financial backing.
