Ennis welcomes launch of GAA rights awareness initiative
Sinn Féin MLA Sinéad Ennis has welcomed and supports today's collaborative Rights Awareness Resource initiative launched at Croke Park by the GAA and the office of the Children’s Ombudsman.
The party’s Culture, Arts and Sport spokesperson said:
“This is a welcome initiative to raise awareness of children’s rights through Gaelic Games on the 25th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
“The Rights Awareness Collaboration gives coaches, teachers, volunteers and parents an opportunity to hear from children and young people who are involved in Gaelic games about how it positively impacts on their rights.
“It’s a credit to those who have invested much time to make this project a reality including the GAA, Ladies Football and Camogie Association and the office of the Children’s Ombudsman.
“This resource will benefit many but the most important group that it will benefit is our children and young people through ensuring the rights of the child are promoted everyday within a positive and fun environment.”
