Muintir na Tíre
Muintir na Tíre is the National Association for the Promotion of Community Development in Ireland.
Founded in 1937, Muintir na Tíre is a national voluntary organisation dedicated to promoting the process of community development. It aims to enhance the capacities of people in communities, rural and urban, to become involved in local social, economic, cultural and environmental development.
The mission of Muintir na Tíre is threefold:
- To actively support local communities to organise and develop their capacity to effectively respond to identified needs and problems, and to promote a spirit of community service in working for the common good.
- To objectively represent and support locally identified problems, interests and viewpoints at national level, through informing government policy and developing coherent agendas for action, in co-operation with both the local communities
and the various public agencies/government departments.
- To assess the potential implications of major economic and social forces, and policy trends, for local community development, and seeking to influence, as appropriate, government policy formation and institutional arrangements.
