"It's basically over one million euro to strip out and refurbish the old vocational school building in Mohill. It's going to give a proper state of the art home to Leitrim Youth Reach. The second thing its going to do is provide 200 learners a year with access to full and part time courses delivered here in Mohill by the ETB, so a real chance for local people to take part in education courses in Mohill".
