Bairbre de Brún to attend community conferences in Armagh and Belfast today
Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún is this morning attending the launch conference of the "Border Exchange & Action Network" (BEAN) in Armagh, which promotes equality and active citizenship in the Central Border Area.
This network came out of a pilot programme funded by INTERREG III and the launch is taking place at a sustainable community conference, in conjunction with the Irish Central Border Area Network (ICBAN).
Ms de Brún will also attend the ŒConnect Final Conference‚ at the Waterfront Hall, Belfast this lunchtime. This conference will examine the lessons from a two year project funded under PEACE II, which links Belfast Metropolitan Area with regions in Spain, Poland, Sweden and Lithuania. ENDS
