Muintir na Tire Eastern Garda Region

Muintir na Tíre is a nationwide voluntary organisation dedicated to promoting the process of community development and resident safety.

Founded in 1937 Muintir na Tíre aims to enhance the capacities of people in communities, rural and urban, to become involved in local social, economic, cultural and environmental development. Make your community a safer place:
  • For your neighbour
  • For your children
  • For older poeple
  • For vulnerable people
  • For you, your family and your home
Community Alert is a community programme or organised by voluntary groups in association with Muintir na Tire and An Garda Siochan

What Can We Do?

  • Get to know your neighbours, particularly those living alone and be a good neighbour to them. Call in and visit, run an errand- it's the small things and the human contact that count.
  • Be Alert - if you see somebody or a vehicle acting suspiciously in your area, call the Gardai.
  • Keep an eye on your property and of your neighbour - help to prevent vandalism and theft.
  • Be aware of other safety initiatives.
  • Your Community Needs You - Play Your Part!

What Else Can You Do ? Get Involved!

  • If you live in a Community Alert Area, make contact with your local Garda or committee member and find out how you can help.
  • If you have no Community Alert Group in your area, why not start one - contact your local Garda or Muintir na Tire Community Alert Development Officer.

Be Active, Be Alert!

  • Community Alert is about creating and maintaining a caring community.
  • Community Alert aims to allay fear and reduce feeling of isolation.
  • Community Alert is about partnership with you and the other voluntary agencies in your community.
