The social apostolate of the diocese is carried out by a number of agencies, which while not part of the diocesan structure, are closely linked to its mission. Work with families in need and the elderly and people with addictions is carried out by Clarecare and North Tipperary Community Services. The needs of young people are met by the work of Ennis , Kilrush & Shannon Youth Centres. Ceifin Research Centre analyses the direction which Irish Society is taking and explores ways in which people can respond to these changes. ACCORD provides support when looking for help with marriage and relationship difficulties, Preparing for marriage, seeking to enhance relationship and learning more about marriage and family issues.
