Bairbre de Brún MEP

Bhí Feisire na hEorpa Bairbre de Brún ar cuairt go deisceart Bhéal Feirste um trathnóna, bhual le grúpaí áirithe thart fán cheantar agus í ansin.

Six County MEP Bairbre de Brún today joined, Alex Maskey, Sinn Féin's representative in Balmoral, Vincent Parker and myself on a number of engagements in south Belfast.

Our day began at the Shaftsbury Recreation Centre on the Lower Ormeau Road, a brilliant centre, currently undergoing a multi-million pound development. Bairbre met and spoke with local community worker Gerard Rice about the current work of the 'reccy' plus the plans that lie ahead for the extension. While there Bairbre, a former school teacher (she taught me French and Maths in the Méanscoil!!), paid a quick visit to the SureStart Mother & Toddlers group based there too.

From there we went the short distance to South & East Belfast's Irish Language and Cultural centre An Droichead.
Agus muid ansin bual muid leis an fhoireann agus ansin le muinteóirí agus daltaí ó Gaelscoil an Droichid.

While there we met with An Droichead's co-ordinator Dr Pól Deeds, he and I as Board members of An Droichead took the opportunity to brief Bairbre on the exciting plans for the development for the scheme into the future.

a lán obair romhainn ach faoi ceaanaireacht Pól agus a leithead tús maith againn.

Afterwards Bairbre met with teachers and pupils from the adjoining Gaelscoil an Droichid. A number of representatives from the school's student council informed us of the school's plans for a bio-diversity garden in the grounds of the school.

Iontach deas!!

No doubt we'll be welcoming Bairbre back into the constituency over the coming weeks, she'll be stomping the streets of the Short Strand with me this weekend, and I have every confidence people will come out to meet and engage with their current and future MEP.
