This year, 2018, is the centenary of Irish women winning the right to vote. In the general election of December 1918 Irish women voted for the first time, although they had to be over 30 years of age and landowners. It is also the 100th anniversary of the election of Ireland’s first female Member of Parliament – Countess Markievicz.In commemoration of these historic events Meath County Council and the Library Service, in association with Pegasus Consulting, are pleased to host RTÉ broadcaster and historian Dr. Myles Dungan with a team of Ireland’s most sought – after historians for a Seminar on ‘The Changing Lives and Roles of Mná Na hÉireann in the early years of the 20th Century’.
“The biggest change in the primary educational system in Drogheda in decades will see the amalgamation of St Brigid’s and St Patrick’s girls and boys schools at Bothar Brugha into one school. New plans will also result in the introduction of a junior infants to sixth class model in both St Joseph’s CBS and the Presentation NS on the Ballymakenny Road. And parents wishing to send their children to the schools – including St Oliver’s NS, whose process remains unchanged – will now have to apply under a common application enrolment form. ‘The common application system makes provision for families to apply for enrolment in St Peter’s Parish schools and will provide a wider choice of school type for children of the parish with greater availability of access to the co-educational model,’ Archbishop Eamon Martin added in a statement this week.”
The Augustinian Garden of Remembrance designed by landscape architect Aideen Morrissey is where people can sit and reflect on their lives or remember loved ones who have passed away. Inspiration for the Garden has grown out of the Augustinian community’s the association with organisations such as SOSAD, the National Roads Authority, and the Emergency Services through the annual Masses in memory of those who have been lost through suicide, road traffic accidents and other tragic circumstances.
