Dail na nÓg 2017 – ‘Equality’ 


Dail na nÓg 2017 will take place in Croke Park on Wednesday 6th December. The theme for this year will be Equality, voted on by 285 Comhairle members from all over the country from four proposed themes. The others were Young People and Civic Engagement, Healthy Lifestyle and Transport. The four themes were chosen on the basis that they were representative of what is currently being worked on by Comhairli nationally. Topics that have been worked on at the five previous Dáil na nÓgs were discounted from inclusion. Equality was the runaway winner.

A steering committee was established in June 2017, made up of three Comhairle members and a coordinator from each of three of the following Comhairlí: Kerry, Limerick and Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown. They have been involved in all aspects of the planning for the event, and the Comhairle members recently took part in a workshop to come up with a methodology for the day. The next meeting will take place in late September 2017.
