Copyright © Muintir Mhuire 2014.
Muintir Mhuire was set up on 1st Oct 2003 in Monacraigh Cottage, Ladysbridge, Co. Cork, a house on temporary loan by another charity.It began totally dependent on Divine Providence, with httle funds assets or materials, but with great trust in a loving God who knows all our needs. It was set up by Fr. Donal 0' Callaghan, who has been working as a priest for the last 30 years, and been led by the Holy Spirit to the assistance of many young people.
These are his words:
"During all these years I had met many young people who at the time of decision in their lives, found themselves under a lot of pressure, people who were badly in need of a place to take time out to be able to look at all the options available to them. A place where they could begin to appreciate all their blessings and come to know the immense love that God has for them.".
"Over many years this realisation of a need for such a place became a desire to do something about it and the desire grew stronger"
So it was after much thought, prayer, fasting and discussion with family and friends a group came together with Fr. Donal and set about the formation of Muintir Mhuire with the support of his bishop. Bishop John Magee, Bishop of Cloyne appointed Fr. Donal Spiritual Director to Muintir Mhuire and freed him from other pastoral duties so that he could devote himself full time to organising Muintir Mhuire.
