Cultural Companions

A social network for Clare’s older citizens interested in arts, culture, volunteering and meeting new people. Many of us would probably go to a lot more plays, films, shows, concerts, exhibitions or other events if we had someone to go with. There’s a thriving social and arts scene out there to be enjoyed if only we had someone with the know-how or the shared interest to get us going. That’s where Cultural Companions comes in.

Volunteer members are facilitated by the Clare Age Friendly Programme to draw up a calendar of events to choose from every two months. All members receive the calendar of events, posted out by the volunteers, and independently book and pay for the event they wish to attend. The members meet up at an allocated time prior to some events and attend together, usually with a social get together built in. Events in Clare County Library, glór and Arts are among those included in each Calendar and this project encourages cross-sectoral co-operation among members of the Culture Team.

The project is facilitated by the Rural Development Directorate and if you would like to join, please contact Helen Moloney on (065) 6846240 or email:

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
