Young people in Monaghan should make their voices heard in consultation on Constitutional Future of Ireland – Matt Carthy TD
Cavan Monaghan Sinn Féin TD, Matt Carthy, has called on young people in County Monaghan to make submissions to an Oireachtas Committee considering ‘the constitutional future of the island of Ireland.’
Marking the centenary of the Seanad, its Public Consultation Committee has invited submissions ‘given the ongoing public policy debate on the issue, the safeguarding of the peace process and the future that Ireland would like to have for generations to come.’
“The appetite for change is clear and across society people are talking about the benefits of Irish unity and how constitutional change can create a better, fairer and more equal Ireland for us all to share.
“It is right that the Committee is particularly seeking submissions by young people, and I think it’s incredibly important that those from border communities in particular ensure that their voices heard.
“This consultation brings these important issues into the heart of the Oireachtas and creates a crucial platform for discussion of pertinent issues such as the economy, environment, education, social issues and healthcare.
“I would encourage young people and groups to make a submission in advance of the 3-days of hearings that will take place between September and November.”
Further information with regard to making a submission can be accessed on the Oireachtas website here:
