Limerick Comhairle na nÓg is inviting young people (13-17yrs) to this year’s AGM which takes place at the University of Limerick on Thursday, October 25th from 9am-3pm.
The AGM is an opportunity for young people to learn about the role of Comhairle na nÓg (youth council), speak with current and past members, take part in workshops, enjoy some music and have fun.
‘This year’s AGM will focus on Cyber Health & Wellbeing which the young people with Comhairle na nÓg have been working on for the past number of months,’ said John Real, Limerick Youth Service (LYS).
Comhairlí will give an update their year to date and premiere one of three short films that have produced as part of their Cyber Health & Wellbeing theme.
‘The short films deal with education and protecting yourself online. They will be shared online and in schools as part of a web safety workshop that will be rolled out by Comhairlí,’ explained John, Coordinator, Limerick Comhairle na nÓg.
Students, teachers, parents or youth workers who would like more information on the AGM or Comhairle na nÓg can contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org or 087-2626816.

In the past Comhairle na nÓg has addressed issues such as youth homelessness, living in the Direct Provision system, cyberbullying and the teaching of sexual education in the secondary schools.
