Welcome to the home page of Southwest Kerry Women's Association. 

We are a network of locally based women's groups in south west Kerry, covering the area between Kells and Sneem. We provide training, support, information, help, advice and lobbying for the women of southwest Kerry.

We aim to:

Enable women to be actively involved in their local communities

Encourage and support women to participate in the decision making process in areas that affect their lives

Identify and meet the needs of local women

Develop a supportive management structure that is representative and reflective of the needs of women
