Concern are hosting a World Café in St. Peter’s, Cork on the 25th of January 2018 from 18.00. Endless amounts of coffee/tea and light refreshments will be made available. It would be fantastic to have representatives from Youth Work Ireland Cork who might be interested at the event, adding their voice, experiences, knowledge and ideas on how Ireland will “LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND”.
