The main areas covered will be:

  • Financial responsibilities
  • Different types of financial reports
  • Understanding and interpreting financial reports
  • Warning signs.


The workshop will be delivered in collaboration with Tipperary County Council, Tipperary Public Participation Network, North Tipperary Development Company and South Tipperary Development Company
