Jerry Murphy, Acting CEO

Working on behalf of the Irish Government, Pobal is committed to being open and accountable, and we are constantly pursuing ways to keep communities informed about our work. Our new website is one of the ways we seek to do this.

Since 1992, Pobal has granted millions of euros on behalf of the Irish Government and the European Union to thousands of local and national community organisations in every part of the country.

Our mission is to work with Government and local and national community organisations to combat social exclusion and to improve outcomes for communities, families, individuals and children.

Like many of the organisations we’ve supported over the years, Pobal relies on the passion, talent and energy of dedicated volunteers. Our volunteer Board of Directors are instrumental, guiding and supporting our work.

To learn more about the wide range of Programmes we manage and administer on behalf of Government and other bodies, please visit our Programmes page and read the case studies for various programmes for an insight into the valuable work being supported in communities around Ireland.

We are committed to knowledge sharing and research and the work of our Monitoring, Analysis and Outcomes Unit across all areas of the business is explained on the Research & Analysis page.

Finally can I thank you for taking the time to learn more about Pobal. If you have any comments or suggestions as to how we might further enhance our website, please do not hesitate to email us at or call us at 01 511 7000.
