The Community Outreach Group members have been invited by the Meath Peace Group to attend an event marking the Decade of Centenaries,

It will take place at St Columban’s College, Dalgan Park, Navan Co, Meath, on Saturday, September 26.

Due to a reduction in funding currently experienced by COG, it no longer has the funds to hire transportation.
