Intercultural Working Group
Longford County Council established an Intercultural Working Group in conjunction with key agencies to promote equality and facilitate greater inclusion of all communities in the county. The group provides a forum for sharing information, for interagency co-operation and for the coordination of services.
Longford Intercultural Working Group held two meetings in 2022. The aim of the working group is to provide a forum to share information, to promote interagency co-operation and to co-ordinate the delivery of local services.
In 2022, €20,000 was distributed in grants to assist projects which support our new communities in County Longford.
Longford County Council and the PPN facilitated an Intercultural Forum meeting in the Longford Arms. The purpose of the meeting was to provide information to migrant groups, to listen and discuss issues of concern in their communities.

An event was held on Saturday, 21 May in the Temperance Hall with entertainment provided by local artists, dancers, and performers as well as cultural displays.
