17th Annual Winter Workshop
The 17th annual winter workshop organised by Cooley Environmental and Health Group will take place in The Strand, Omeath, Co. Louth, on Saturday 28 January 2017 from 14:00 until 17:30. The topic of the workshop this time is Homelessness.
There will be 3 keynote speakers. Niall Hayden will deal with practical provision for homeless people. Michael Challoner will present on housing. Sean Brosnan will deal with the difficult topics of negative equity and repossession of homes. It is planned to break the attendance up into 3 small groups to each discuss one of the 3 topics mentioned. It is expected that participants for each of the three groups will be chosen at random. When the 3 groups have reported back to the full assembly Eamonn O'Boyle will sum up in a closing remark. It is hoped to publish a detailed record of the proceedings on the group's web-site soon after the event.
