Ballaghaderreen Foróige members meet the President

Members of Ballaghaderreen’s Foróige club were the guests of the President in Aras an Uachtaráin this week to celebrate their work at helping young Syrians integrate into the local community.

The club, which recently won a national award for its work with young Syrians in the town, were greeted by Michael D at a special afternoon tea event in the Phoenix Park.

Several teenage members of the West-Roscommon club, including two Syrian girls were present at the Aras to explain their work within the community to President Higgins.


Theresa Geever, co-ordinator of the Ballaghaderreen Foróige Club, told Shannonside FM it was a special afternoon.
