Iveagh House to host Concern and ministers

On Tuesday 8 April, Iveagh House in Dublin will host an event to mark the partnership between the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Concern.

Speaking at the reception, which will take place between 6.30 - 8.30pm, will be the Minister for Foreign Affairs Dermot Ahern, former Taoiseach Garret Fitzgerald, Michael Kitt, Minister of State for Overseas Development, and CEO of Concern Tom Arnold.

The event will pay tribute to the work of the government and Irish aid agencies and will also mark the occasion of Concern’s 40 years in operation.

There have already been a number of important events in 2008 to highlight Concern’s work over the years, including a reception with Irish President McAleese and the publication of an Irish Times supplement. One of the focuses of the coming months will no doubt be the international conference on hunger that Concern is hosting. Kofi Annan will be one of the speakers at this; click here for more details.
