Ireland - 40 years in the EU

Ireland has been a member of the EU for 40 years. To mark this anniversary, Dublin City Public Libraries have received funding to explore the role the European Union plays in our daily lives. It has developed a programme of events and competitions for all ages which will be presented throughout March under the ‘Communicating Europe Initiative’ (CEI) to focus on what four decades of membership has brought to Irish Citizens. 

For the older munchkins, there is an Essay Competition – ‘Challenges and Changes: Ireland’s 40 years of EU Citizenship’ open to everyone attending a second level school in Dublin – entrants get a chance to win an iPad mini. Closing date for receipt of essays and completed entry forms is Saturday 12th April 2014.

There are also free Art Workshops for Children with artist Kitty Rogers–“Flags of Europe” .  The first batch was last Saturday, but there are more on today Saturday 29th March in Coolock (at 2pm) and Raheny (at 11am) libraries.

The Workshops are free but places are limited so booking is essential.
