Welcome To Mayo Foróige

There are currently 73 Foróige Clubs in County Mayo which provide activities and recreation for almost 3,500 young people with over 500 volunteers. The key to a successful Foróige Clubs is that young people take ownership by electing their own committee to run the club in co-operation with adult volunteers.

Foróige Clubs in Mayo meet regularly to enhance the development of its members through club and interclub events during the year.  Examples of these include quizzes, talent events, disco’s and recognition nights. These events give the young people the chance to meet new members, make new friends, exchange ideas in a safe and caring environment and have fun while doing so.
