21 November, 2005

Sinn Féin MEP Mary Lou McDonald will host a delegation of women activists from across the community sector in Dublin to the European Parliament in Brussels this Wednesday (23rd November).

The delegation will be accompanied by Ms McDonald and Dublin City Councillors Larry O'Toole and Dessie Ellis and they will meet with representatives from the European Commission regarding health, education, childcare, lifelong learning and youth issues. They will also meet with the European Citizen Action Service (ECAS), European Women's Lobby (EWL) and EUROCHILD.

Speaking prior to the visit Ms McDonald said:

"I am pleased to be hosting Wednesday's event. It is an opportunity for women community activists from across the city of Dublin to engage with the European Commission and foster relationships with the community sector across the EU.

"The women represent a diverse cross section of the community sector here in Dublin and Sinn Féin has sought to work closely with such groups to assist them in that work." ENDS
