Saying Yes: How Ireland reclaimed its future in Europe

A very important book launch takes place this Tuesday, March 16th at 18.30 in the Burlington Hotel, with special guest, Mary Davis, Chairperson Office of Active Citizenship & Managing Director Special Olympics Europe & Eurasia

Wicklow for Europe has the honour of having a chapter dedicated to the story of the tremendous work of the dedicated volunteers who came together, under the leadership of Dermod Dwyer, to ensure a resounding Yes vote in Co Wicklow   Broken wrists, nearly getting arrested, canvassing and that’s just me! 🙂

There is also a Gala Dinner later that night. Under the leadership of Pat Cox, Ireland for Europe ran a very successful Lisbon campaign and collected significant funds through various fund raising activities. However, with the late escalation of the ‘No’ campaign it was necessary to intensify the campaign efforts during the last two weeks and this has resulted in a campaign deficit of circa €150,000.

The Gala Dinner will be the significant fund raising activity, to which it is hoped to attract a wide range of people and the civic society groupings who have clearly benefited from the resounding Yes vote. Apart from being a fund raising event with tables of ten at €1,600 per table (€160 per head), it will be a great Social evening celebrating the outcome of the referendum.

If you are interested in attending either the book launch, and/or the dinner, then please contact me.
