Reply To: Module 4 – Migration and Refugees

Eleanor Curran

Our local hotel is housing refugees from the Ukraine, some of these people are working in the local hospitality industry… shops, coffee shops restaurants. Every Saturday morning there is a community cafe in the hotel where the refugees are living, people come together from all walks of light both from the Irish and Ukrainian community. Here they sample traditional pastries and bread etc. The local GAA club hosts camps for the Ukrainian children where they can learn and try our traditional sports with dance and music classes also available. In our school last year on the first Wednesday of every month we held a culture night where people from the community were invited to take part in music dancing singing etc. This was a huge success and I look forward to it continuing this year. All these groups are helping to foster a sense of community and togetherness in welcoming these people to our area.
