Liam is the founder of The Living Communities Movement which strives to enhance the confidence and well-being of Irish-speaking people and communities who suffer from deprivation and lack of self-esteem.
Local youth, currently demoralised, will find both employment in this and thus will get a new sense of their own value. Liam also works directly with rural and urban Irish-speaking youth, who share not only the experience of poverty but also what remains of one of Europe’s original anchor cultures. He runs work-camps to bring these youths together. Deprived in different ways, they form friendships (usually after three days of mistrust). A factor which helps this is their common use of the native tongue.
Liam is also working to promote sustainable, eco-tourism based on traditional farming to rural, Irish-speaking areas, providing people within these communities with a viable business.
