Comhairle Na nÓg Conference 2010
On Friday the 20th of May Josh and Martin went to a Comhairle na nÓg (Young People’s Council) conference in the Ormond Hotel in Kilkenny. The conference started with the vice chairman of the Comhairle na nÓg Robert Kerwick saying a few words because the chairman Jamie couldn’t make it. After Robert said a few words the Minister Mary White came up to the microphone to talk about the transport issues young people are having. After Mary White spoke all the transport secretaries came up to speak one by one. After they spoke we broke into groups. In the groups we discussed issues that are affecting young people. At the end of discussing we came up with two questions per group to ask the transport secretaries. JJ Kavanagh was feeling hot under the collar by some of the questions being asked. One of the questions asked was “Why aren’t there any bus stops in rural areas”? When it was the finished the Comhairle na nÓg members got a group photo. It was a good day and we enjoyed it.
