Clare PPN welcomes new Secretariat members.

At the end of June, we put out a notice of election for various positions on the Clare PPN secretariat. The Secretariat manages the activities of the Clare PPN at a County level. The members of this group are independent of the County Council and are elected by the members of the PPN. Every group that joins the PPN has a vote and is able to nominate candidates for these and other positions. We were thrilled with the nominations we got from community groups, social inclusion groups and environmental groups across the county this time around and we are excited to announce the following successful candidates:

Dermot Hayes of Clare Leader Forum was elected to the Secretariat to represent Ennis Municipal District.  Dermot brings a wealth of experience to the role with decades of experience in activism and advocacy for people with disabilities.  He passion for human rights includes the issues faced by asylum seekers and the Traveller community.  For more information, click HERE
