Rural communities can be vibrant places but also face challenges of connectivity, access to services and resources, and higher incidence of domestic violence and out-migration to name a few. This episode looks at overcoming some of the barriers faced by rural communities across the island, and includes a discussion on the new common charter for cooperation within and between these islands, North, South and East and West. 





Guests

Tara Farrell is the Deputy CEO of Longford Women’s Link, which aims to link women with resources to help improve and change their own and their families’ lives providing a knock on transformative effect on the local community.
