It is acknowledged that many disadvantaged young men in Limerick City have difficulty getting jobs. The double disadvantage of having a criminal record and being long term unemployed is a huge barrier to gaining employment. PALLS are working to address this issue.


Cairdre Enterprises:

Cairde Enterprises is the trading name of the PALLS Social Enterprise Hub. PALLS is currently building viable business options that will:

  • Generate sustainable revenue
  • Create employment
  • Produce quality product meeting identified gaps in the market
  • Build market share and client base
  • Develop import replacement and export potential product lines

The social dividend resulting from this venture will have significant benefit to the people of Limerick and men in Limerick City who have been involved with the criminal justice system in terms of:

  • Reduced unemployment in the Limerick region with particular emphasis on male ex-offenders
  • Improved social capital and employability of male ex-offenders through the provision of real work experience
  • Maximised potential of the PALLS Training Centre for the social and economic benefit of the men who engage with PALLS and the community at large
