Newsdesk / Picture Desk Diary NoticeYou are cordially invited to the launch of a book “Forming EU Healthcare Policy: A Showcase of Irish involvement” as follows:
DATE: Monday, March 5th
TIME: 12.30 – 2.30p.m.
VENUE: Coach House, Dublin Castle
The launch will take place at a lunch reception in Dublin Castle hosted by the Minister for Health and Children, Mary Harney TD, who is also sponsoring the book.
The book is a portrayal of the INO’s contribution to EU and international policy since its inception. The influence of the INO is particularly evident in 2007 as four members of the organisation lead the presidencies of four European associations, namely Annette Kennedy, President of the European Federation of Nurses Associations, Deirdre Daly, President of the European Midwives Association, Barry McConaghy, President of the European Student Nurses Association, and Edward Mathews, President of the European Trade Union Confederation Youth Committee. In addition to this unique situation, Des Kavanagh of the Psychiatric Nurses Association of Ireland also presides over the European Psychiatric Nurses Association.
Speeches will be given by Minister for Health and Children, Mary Harney, TD; John O’Toole, Former Permanent Representative of Ireland to the European Union; Liam Doran, INO General Secretary, and Annette Kennedy, INO Director of Professional Development.
Please let me know by return if you will be attending as I need names and numbers for the lunch.
