Launch of Public Consultation on Islands’ Policy

Recently I launched the public consultation on a new national policy for our off-shore islands with Tánaiste Simon Coveney on Sherkin Island. Meetings and workshops will be held on all of the islands as the views and experiences of islanders are central to the policy and action plan.

Thug mé cuairt ar Oileán Sherkin le déanaí le Simon Coveney chun próiseas comhchomhairliúcháin phoiblí maidir le beartas náisiúnta do na hoileáin a sheoladh. Reáchtálfar ceardlanna comhairliúcháin le pobail na n-oileán sna seachtainí seo amach romhainn.
