In April, Thrive undertook a Waterford Greenway cycle. There were 16 participants cycling from Dungarvan to Kilmacthomas and back, 44 km in total. The cycle took us through some amazing countryside. Coming out of Dungarvan over the causeway we had views of the bay towards Helvick Head. The next section was a steady incline that led to a viewing point over Clonea Beach and the start of the Copper Coast. Turning inland from there, we had some sheltered areas of track but mostly open countryside with views of the Comeragh Mountains to the north. We stopped in Kilmacthomas for a lengthy break and well-deserved refreshments in The Coach House. The cycle back was as pleasant as the outward journey and the day was a great success with participants suggesting that we make it an annual event.
Thrive had 9 participants on their guided Carrauntoohil hike in August. The hike commenced from Lisleibane and took over an hour to reach the base of the Devil’s Ladder. The route took in the Devils Ladder and once it was surmounted, there was a slow and steady climb to the summit. The weather was amazing, resulting in incredible views from the Beara to the Dingle peninsula. Kerry Climbing guided the walk and provided a safe route and a steady pace to ensure that we all made it to the top. It was a seven-hour hike from start to finish, every minute was worth it for the spectacular views that we encountered on the day.
Congratulations to Tandem’s Advance Graduate Programme participants who recently delivered their annual presentation to the Tandem senior leadership team.
Evan O’Donovan and Ciara O’Connor received their certificates of completion at the ceremony which took place at Blackrock Castle Observatory. Tim Mulhall, Managing Director, congratulated participants on their achievements to date and wished them continued success in their careers with Tandem Project Management. Tim spoke about how the programme supports each graduate’s continuous professional development and the achievement of their short and long-term career goals. Feedback from the senior leadership team also provided the graduates with a range of both professional and personal insights to support them in their career development.
The Advance Graduate Programme is just the beginning of each graduate’s journey and Tandem will continue to support their development, beyond the programme and throughout their career with Tandem.

Tandem is supporting the Irish Cancer Society’s Daffodil Day fundraising throughout the month of March.
In 2020, an estimated 44,000 people in Ireland received a cancer diagnosis. That is 120 people per day, or 5 people per hour, hearing the words “you have cancer!”.
Tandem’s walking group have signed up to the walking challenge to fundraise, if you would like to support their efforts, you can do so here. Tandem also hosted a weeklong coffee morning during the week of Friday, March 25th, to raise funds for Daffodil day.
As part of Engineer’s Week 2022, Tandem donated a ‘Curiosity Box’ to the 3rd class in a local school. The Curiosity Box is an award-winning science and engineering toolkit designed to nurture children’s’ passion for discovery, experimentation, and exploration. Students completed practical experiments in engineering, maths, and chemistry. The main aim of Engineers Week is to promote engineering as a profession of choice to children in Ireland.
Tandem also donated virtual reality viewers to the 6th class pupils. Developed for the Science Museum, the Virtual Reality Goggles Wonderlab® turn almost any mobile phone into a virtual reality viewer. The VR viewers can help students understand the nature of light as part of the National Curriculum for Science.
