13 June 2015 No Comments by The Northern Standard

A powerful focus for the message of Monaghan Social Inclusion Week 2015 was formally unveiled by Monaghan Co Council in Monaghan Town’s Diamond on Tuesday morning last.
Images from the book ‘Here I Am’, published by Down Syndrome Ireland, have gone on display in the county town heartland and will remain on view until June 14 as an articulation of the “It’s okay to be different” message that themes this year’s comprehensive programme of social inclusion activities.
Monaghan Co Council’s Leas Cathaoirleach, Sinn Féin public representative Jackie Crowe, performed the official launch of the display, praising its awareness enhancing power and pointing out that the photographic images had made a strong and positive impression when put on view in Carrickmacross from June 3-7.
The full calendar of events for the social inclusion initiative can be accessed on the website www.monaghan.ie – all events are free.
As part of the programme, Minister of State for New Commmunities, Culture and Equality Aodhan Ó Ríordáin will visit Monaghan Co Museum this, Thursday morning to officially launch the booklet “A tale of two counties – Monaghan 1955, Monaghan 2015”, which traces the history of equality in the county.
