The Meeting Place
Tramore Development Trust acquired the former Friends Meeting House on Upper Branch Road in Tramore from the Society of Friends. Together with government funding, the building was restored and refurbished and was reopened in 2003, now known as the Meeting Place. It originally served as an After-School Centre for children and it is now the base for the Brothers of Charity in Tramore where it runs a centre for adults with special needs.
