Comhairle Members’ Networking Events
Comhairle Members’ Networking Events 2016
An important part of the annual Comhairle na nÓg programme are the Young Comhairle Members’ Regional Networking Events. These comprise three regional events: one in Limerick, one in Sligo and one in Dublin. The purpose of these events is to allow members of Comhairle na nÓg from all over the country to network with other Comhairlí in a very informal way. They encourage young Comhairle members to link in and engage with each other, and learn from each other by sharing ideas. It affords them the opportunity to discuss their topics: what they’re currently working on, what’s working well / not so well, and examine where their Comhairle is at present.
