We are really pleased to announce that a collaboration between the Dublin, Donegal branches, and the Down Syndrome Education Equality Advocates has resulted in the Chair person of the Dáil Education Subcommitee agreeing to a presentation by Prof Sue Buckley of Downs Ed International on the 11th September. Sue is one of the World's leading authorities on the subject of educating people with Down Syndrome.
Pearse Doherty TD of Sinn Fein interceded with the chair on our behalf. Sincere thanks must go to Sue Buckley who is re-arranging her schedule to be here on the 11th, Gina Grant of the Donegal Branch Commitee (and DSEEA), John Brophy of DSEEA, and Pearse Doherty TD for making this possible. Sue's costs for the additional day in Dublin are met equally by the Dublin and Donegal branches.
