Bandon YMCA

Welcome to the Bandon YMCA web-site! Hopefully it will give you a feel for our various activities and programmes. 

Bandon YMCA was established in 1991 and over the intervening years it has developed a range of services and programmes to meet the ever-changing needs of young people. It is managed by a local group of volunteers who help to provide support and direction to a team of staff and programme  volunteers.


Mayor Relaunches West Cork Youth Information Service!

posted 19 Jul 2011

History was made when Cllr Sean O Donovan, Mayor of Bandon, relaunched the West Cork Youth Information Service in its new building. Cllr O Donovan was one of the first young people to be involved in Bandon YMCA nearly 21 years ago and it was a real delight to have him officiate at the launch. He paid tribute to the work of the YMCA over the years in responding to the needs of young people and wished it well in its new venue on Glasslyn Road.

Date: 19th and 20th May 2012 // 12pm-6pm
Location:  YMCA Bandon, Glasslyn Road, Bandon, Co. Cork

“A good camera on it’s own doesn’t make a good picture.It’s the creative perception of the photographer which is the important thing.”

Aim of this photography workshop is to reveal and fine-tune everyones creativity and develop the ability to see and shoot great photographs. We won’t focus on the technology of photography but more on the creative composition.

On Saturday we will explore the basics of design like framing, composition, viewing points and contrast.

On Sunday we will apply our new knowledge and improve the photos with an image editing software after the excursion.

You don’t have to have any background knowledge... but please bring your own camera!

For any further questions please email
or call 023 8844009

We are looking forward to see you.
