With no full time employees and just two part time staff the Tralee International Resource Centre(TIRC) simply couldn’t exist without its volunteers, they are a core part of every service they provide. TIRC works, since 2009, to support integration in Tralee by providing a drop in facility and services to asylum seekers, refugees and the broader international community. Volunteers have been a key part of the TIRC from the very beginning and they value their Volunteers' involvement.

My name is Ciara Long and I am a Volunteer from Dingle, Co. Kerry. I have volunteered with different groups over the last eight years or so for many reasons. The biggest reason is probably that I want to help. I find it a good way to contribute to society while meeting new people, learning new skills and just having fun along the way.
