Bairbre de Brún to host PEACE III delegation in Brussels
Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún will tomorrow host a delegation of people campaigning for a PEACE III programme for the Six Counties and the border regions (11-12th October).
The two day visit will see campaigners from Monaghan, Antrim, Belfast, Derry and Tyrone, and representing the community sector, travel to Brussels to meet with a wide range of MEPs and officials from the European Commission.
The visit comes less than a week after Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams met with Danuta Hubner, European Commissioner for Regional Development to press the case for extended peace and reconciliation funding. ENDS
