County Kildare Leader Partnership

County Kildare Leader Partnership

County Kildare Leader Partnership is one of over fifty Local Development Companies in Ireland. They are responsible for the delivery of a range of rural, enterprise, social inclusion, and community development initiatives in County Kildare.

Pinta has worked with the Leader Partnership to facilitate development projects within County Kildare for example:

  • Animation Programme to develop a Business and Cultural Information Portal for County Kildare.
  • To Project Manage and Support the Engagement of the Communities around Kildare Town & the Curragh to work with the Extended Brigidine Network in creating an outstanding flagship ‘Gathering’ event in Kildare as part of the Solas Bhríde Project.  

Pinta provided mentoring support to the Solas Bhride Community when they were hosting their St. Brigid of Kildare Gathering Festival in September 2013. We were very happy to be a part of this very successful event and we received a great testimonial.

“An initial meeting with Peter Hanan and Orla Cullen, who listened to our vision, and subsequently crafted a submission to IPB for funding on our behalf, prepared the way for us in hosting an international St. Brigid of Kildare Gathering Festival, in Kildare Town, from 15 to 21 September 2013.  Helen Cahill of Pinta was assigned to working with us in the delivery of project management skills, event promotion skills and event management over the course of the planning and management of the Kildare Event. Helen also did enormous work in facilitating meetings, and the quality of her written material and follow up on meetings was exceptional. She kept us focused and ensured a successful outcome.  Pinta’s professional approach, its commitment to our project and its ongoing mentoring support were instrumental in making the event so successful.  The acquisition of a wide variety of project management skills throughout the process will be hugely beneficial to Solas Bhride when it opens a new purpose built Spirituality Centre in 2014.  Solas Bhride has no hesitation in recommending Pinta for its creative services and its capacity to make the seemingly impossible, possible. Overall, working with Pinta has been a challenge and a blessing.”
