We are well under way to finalising the programme for our November 8 Politics and Society conference. This event is kindly sponsored by the Department of Foreign Affairs, “Communicating Europe Initiative” and Minister for State Thomas Byrne will attend. Also, key thinker on the leaving cert course Kathleen Lynch will be joined at the event by leading journalists, academics and politicians (Matt Carthy, Colm Markey, Audrey Carville, Susan McKay and Michael Pierse). Five other schools from across the country are travelling to the conference and we look forward to welcoming them. Take a look at the draft programme attached below
