Supporting Charities/Local Communities

Every year the elected Captains run a ‘charity day’ for nominated charities of their choice. There is always a focus on well deserving charities including local ones. This year 2021 the nominated
charities are barretstown childrens charity and the local seal scantuary.
In addition we run a play in pink week every year and proceeds raised in the past have gone to St.Luke’s Hospital, The Caroline Foundation and Cancer Research.
Supporting charities is part of the ‘Tara Glen’ ethos and we endeavour to give back to the
community and locality that we get so much from.


Barretstown Children’s Charity

The Captains of Tara Glen have nominated this charity before as we have had a direct link to the service provided.

As a community we are ever grateful for the wonderful Childhood memories made in Tara Glen for our Children and recognise the important service provided for families by Barretstown when serious illnesses hit.

Seal Rescue Ireland

Seal Rescue Ireland – Tara Glen Habitat Restoration Collaboration

This year Tara Glen’s Greenkeeping staff team have been working closely with the Volunteers from Seal rescue Ireland in a Habitat Restoration Collaboration.

By May 2021, 2,517 barerooted saplings from 19 different native species have been transplanted into Tara Glen and the surrounding environment. The trees, and restoration sites, are being carefully monitored by SRI, so there is a record of the ecological impact these activities have on the local ecosystem as the trees grow.


Tara Glen Cycling Group

In 2020, The TG Riders took part in a charity fundraising cycle from Dublin to Tara Glen, that was inspired by TG Rider, Pamela Renwick. The group raised over €1,500 and donated the funds towards the purchase of a defibrillator now installed outside the shop in Ballymoney.  Funds were also donated to the Pieta House charity.  A thoroughly enjoyable day out that culminated with some drinks and dinner in the clubhouse that evening.
