National Foróige Volunteer Conference Cancelled


In light of the challenging weather conditions facing the country at the moment, Youth Development Organisation Foróige has taken the decision to cancel its National Volunteer Conference scheduled to take place in the Hodson Bay Hotel in Athlone from Friday 2nd March to Sunday March 4th. 


Sean Campbell, CEO of Foróige said “this is the first time in our 66 year history that we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the annual gathering of Foróige volunteers. However it was made in the firm interests of the safety of the volunteers, guests and staff due to travel to the conference from all corners of the country.”


All delegates scheduled to attend the conference are asked to check their e-mail for further information and updates.
