Spraoi has meant so much to my children and I. As one of the Co-Founders I have always tried to ensure that the children and young people of Carndonagh have access to a wide variety of fun recreational activities. Come along and join us you won’t be disappointed.

Hi, we live in Belgium and we come over every summer to see our family. To give my husband and I a little break we enroll the kids in some of the summer camps (surfing, computer, sports,…). The kids are always so excited when you pick them up. Thank you so much. Staff is very helpful and oh so friendly.

Spraoi agus Spórt is the gold standard for social enterprise. It a wonderfully progressive, supportive and inclusive organisation to work for providing me with all the support and tools I need to develop and deliver the Social Buddies Initiative effectively in the community.
