A Bit of Background
Comhar Chuigéal is a community development organisation based in Leitir Mealláin (anglicised as Lettermullen), an island just off the south-west coast of County Galway, Ireland. Leitir Mealláin is one of a cluster of small islands known as Ceantar na nOileán (generally called The Islands in English). Ceantar na nOileán includes the major islands of Leitir Mealláin, Garmna (Gorumna in English) and Leitir Móir (Lettermore). These are very close to the Irish coast and are fully-linked to the mainland by bridges.
