Take a Break @ Cafe Fergus

Welcome to Obair

Obair has been in existence in Newmarket on Fergus for over 25 years. It is a community development organisation that works with people from the cradle to the grave to combat social exclusion as well as to develop social enterprise in the area. We support those who are unemployed or elderly and work to facilitate greater community participation in the area. We operate a Community Crèche, Afterschool Programme, Meals on Wheels, Community Café, Educational Training Programmes, Arts and Heritage Dept as well as an Environmental Section. Due to the current Covid-19 Restrictions our main Obair building is closed to the public. Our Community Creche is operating under these restrictions and our expanded Meals on Wheels service is operated from the Ground Floor of the building. We look forward to opening our new Tradaree Building in the coming weeks.
