Leitrim Intercultural Forum Information Fair
I am writing to invite you, or a member of your organisation, to take
part at the Leitrim Intercultural Forum Information Fair taking place
at the Bush Hotel, Carrick-on Shannon on Wednesday 23 March 2011
between 4pm and 7pm.
Leitrim Intercultural Forum is a new group being established to
provide training, information, advocacy, support, activities and
address issues affecting Leitrim’s newest communities from around the
We are also starting Leitrim Intercultural Women, a group to provide
support, social activities, family information and practical guidance
for women settling into new communities.
Our programme so far has included a number of information sessions
around the county and family art weekend to create a carnival piece
for the Carrick-on-Shannon St Patrick’s Day parade. Future activities
planned include a cross border trip for women to Fermanagh and the
production of an information pack for new communities. There will
also be further meetings and training events in both Manorhamilton and
Carrick-on-Shannon to set up and support the county-wide Intercultural
Forum and Intercultural Women’s group.
The Information Fair will include various service providers in a trade
fair style setting, which will enable local people, particularly those
from new communities, to access information, raise concerns and find
out more about the services available to them in County Leitrim.
I have attached a booking form should you wish to host a stand at the
event. We would appreciate it if you could return this to us no later
than Wednesday 16 March to allow us to confirm arrangements with the
