Thanks to everyone who attended last nights meeting discussing 15th Anniversary of the signing of the Good Friday Agreement at St Michaels Irish Centre. A great turnout from the Irish community and beyond.
Special thanks to our speakers, Francie Molloy, Member of Parliament Mid-Ulster; Nick Taylor, Chief Executive of The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace Warrington; Dr Kevin Bean, Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool and Martin Collins, Parliamentary Officer, Federation of Irish Societies for providing excellent insights into the Agreement itself and more importantly what needs to be done to maintain the peace.
Was also great to see Paul Maskey MP and Dr Kevin McNamara former Shadow Secretary of State for the North of Ireland at the meeting.
Cairde na hEireann Liverpool realises the important role that the Irish community in liverpool and Merseyside has in promoting dialogue and supporting the full implementation of the Good Friday Agreement. We pledge ourselves to continue to organise public events that contribute towards reconcilliation and dealing with the legacy of the past.
