The Bantry Bay Lions Club is a non-profit organization and is dedicated to giving back to the community and supporting those in need at home and abroad. All members are volunteers and pay a yearly membership fee to cover administrative costs. Any costs for travel and sustenance are borne by the members so that 100% of all funds raised go directly to the charity or disaster relief it is collected for. The members support the local community and provide assistance and financial support to various programs and local organizations. They meet at the Bantry Tourism Office at 7pm on the second Thursday of the month. To learn more about the Bantry Bay Lions you are cordially invited to visit their website at www.bantrybaylions.com or attend their monthly meeting.
