Galway – Dublin – Washington – EQUAL Ireland Presentation to President Obama

Eamon Gilmore & ObamaWith the support of longtime friend, An Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore,  TD., a Marquette of the well-known Equality Emerging Statue which is situated opposite the Cathedral in Galway was presented to President Obama including the famous verse which resounds with the 9.11 attack

Above a hole in the ground
No matter what stands
Measures nothing of life
Unless it touches our hearts
Inspires our humanity to act
And then to persevere

 

EQUAL Ireland are determined to build on the connections made in the US as a result of this presentation and have plans to develop a Scholarship and Exchange Programme on the back of the Equality Emerging Statue as well as using these connections to further the development of a Transatlantic Honors Degree Programme at HETAC Level 8.
