Dr. Cliona Hannon, CEO, joined the panel at The Ireland Funds global conference on 16 June in Killarney. The conference brings together friends and supporters of social, educational and cultural projects in Ireland to learn about the impact of their support. The Education Panel reflected on the unique pathways for children and young adults in education, the challenges they face and the opportunities represented by the programmes the panelists lead across Ireland. Human potential exists in all communities and these programmes enable people from all backgrounds to reach their full potential and contribute to community, society and economy.
Joining Cliona on the panel, the other panelists were:
Des Aston, National & Schools Coordinator at the Trinity Centre for People with Intellectual Disabilities
Dr Josephine Bleach, Director, NCI Early Learning Initiative
Joanne Burke, Deputy Principal, CBS James Street
