Tiglin came up with a new idea to provide employment and community development opportunities.
Following an unsuccessful appeal for summer jobs for Ukrainian teenagers, Tiglin CEO Phil Thompson and Chair Aubrey McCarthy came up with a new idea to provide employment, integration, and community development opportunities. They sourced a cabin for ice cream sales, and placed it on the grounds of Tiglin's 'Rise At The Cove' café. The facility is manned by Ukrainian teenagers.
According to one of the Ukrainians serving "the best 99s in Wicklow"; "This is more than just a job, this is a sense of belonging and a great way to meet the community who welcomed us into their town."
Chairman of Tiglin, Aubrey McCarthy, said that "it's been a pleasure to see young people from Ukraine learn and engage with the people of Greystones alongside the residents of Carraig Eden."
