A Family Fun Day will be held in Mountjoy Square Park on Thursday 24 July for the families of asylum seekers who are participating in JRS Ireland’s Summer Programme. The programme has been running since July 10 and has catered in many and varied ways for Dublin-based asylum seekers and their families. There have been twice-weekly swimming sessions for the children, as well as workshops and art classes. The Family Fun Day will involve treasure hunts, face painting, circus games, kite making, races, football and a picnic. The Summer Programme will continue into August with a trip to a working farm in Wicklow, a trip to the beach (weather permitting), bowling, swimming and art workshops.
