    Asperges group for teens/young adults


    I am trying to find a group that meets up in the Leitrim/Longford/Roscommon area for older teenagers and young adults. Just an informal social group where they can be themselves, talk about what helps them, or talk about similar experiences, go out and do activities together.

    If there is a group I would love to get in touch. Or if anyone would be interested in getting together.
