Event Description

The Bealtaine launch took place in the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny.

Guest speaker Grainne Haines spoke on the older active citizen in the EU and the support they receive from the EU. Grainne highlighted monetary support which enables their group to promote active EU citizenship throughout the country. She spoke in glowing terms of how positively the EU has impacted on her life as an active older EU citizen. To illustrate this point she had an impre4ssive list of Irish organisations which receive funding from the EU. Grainne was really a great ambassador for the EU.
