We recently convened locals from around Ceann Trá / Ventry where we were hosted by Quinn’s Bar / Tigh Uí Chuinn and Siopa Uí Lúing / Ventry Post Office, who provided some lovely home-made snacks. These went down very well with the remote workers who took time-out to get to know others in the same boat as themselves: working from home.
A wide cross-section of job-types and industries were represented as people explained what they do for a living and gave their experiences of working from home, with some mentioning that they lack the social aspect of being in a workplace. These local get-togethers can help as a social outlet, as workers get to know others who are nearby. Topics ranged wildly from monitoring honey-bees, Public Transport (both within and to leave Dingle Peninsula) to the importance of local food!
We all learnt something new, and we were also able to link up some people that we met with others on the Peninsula who offer a suitable service or can provide advice on their projects. Synergies like this is another great benefit of these meet and greets.
An chéad bhabhta eile: Caisleán Ghriaire / Up next: Castlegregory!
We will be in Castlegregory in the covered courtyard of Moe’s Café on the last day of June! Drop in for a coffee and chat the morning of June 30th. Make a note of the date now so you don’t forget and let other remote workers near Castlegregory know to join as well.
We know there are lots of people working this way so if you think that there is demand for a similar get together in your area, please drop a note to firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject: Coffee Morning) or call us. It will be great to connect these communities and get a better picture of who is working where, what they do and want! Keep an eye on our social media for future events.
Beidh sé fíor-dheas na pobail seo a chur i dteagmháil lena chéile agus beidh sé cabhrach dúinn dar ndóigh a fháil amach cá bhfuil na daoine seo, cad atá ar siúl acu agus cad atá ag teastáil uathu! Bígí ag faire amach le haghaidh tuilleadh eolais faoin maidin chaifé agus faoi imeachtaí eile amach anseo.
