The Youth Worker: Audio Slideshow featuring Thomas McCarthy of Core Youth Service in Inchicore

Thomas McCarthy grew up in Blanchardstown Dublin and is now a youth worker at Core Youth Service in Inchicore.

Mixing his love for cycling with his work, last year McCarthy completed the Paris2Nice charity cycle and rode over 700km in six days to help raise over €25,000 to fund the construction of the Core Workshop located inside the Core Youth Service centre.

The workshop is where young people come to learn mechanical skills and in the process, also pick up essential life skills such as problem-solving.

In the audio slideshow below, McCarthy talks about his career as a youth worker and what keeps him motivated in a job that can be equally challenging and rewarding.
