JRS news is good news…

jrs_report_01The news was good when Jan O’Sullivan TD, Minister of State, Dept of Foreign Affairs and Trade launched the Progress Report on  the Limerick City and Council Integration Plan, in the Hunt Museum, Limerick,  Friday, 25 March. Eugene Quinn, Director of the Jesuit Refugee Service is Joint Chairperson of the Limerick Integration Working group who produced this first annual report and he said that strong progress had been made in all of the areas identified as priorities for helping refugees become fully part of Irish society and their local communities. Even better, he added, in areas such as sports, the arts, interfaith co-ooperation and social inclusion projects, many activities were implemented and completed successfully during last year. “We are now in a strong position to build on the progress made in 2010, and make sure we realise our vision for integration in the next two years.”
