    Go Co-op: recent cases of Irish co-operative start-ups
    (University College Cork, Centre for Co-operative Studies, 2018-09) Moroney, Aisling; Carroll, Bridget; McCarthy, Olive
    This project aims to raise awareness of the role of co-operatives in Ireland and the practicalities involved in their establishment. This is achieved by means of detailing five case studies of new/emerging co-operatives. The focus of the case studies is on the motivations and experiences of these new co-operatives including factors facilitating and/or hindering their development. Cases cover a range of geographical locations, both urban and rural and a range of sectors from agri-food to retailing to environmental sustainability. It is hoped that the cases will be of benefit to: Individuals/groups wishing to establish a co-operative, whether in terms of inspiration or by way of practical example; Educators and researchers in need of relevant case studies to demonstrate the roles and practicalities as well as policy issues pertaining to co-operative development; Representative/apex bodies involved in the establishment and development of co-operatives. The co-operatives featured are: Aran Islands Energy; Co-operative/ Comharchumann Fuinnimh Oileáin Árann Teoranta; Donegal Woodland; Owners Co-operative: Ring of Kerry Quality; Lamb Co-operative; Courtmacsherry; Community Shop; Third Space Co-operative.
