LIMERICK people are being urged to attend the Convention on the Constitution at the Strand Hotel this Wednesday, November 27 at 7.30pm to share their views on the areas of the constitution that they would like to see amended or changed.

The Convention on the Constitution was established in 2012 to discuss proposed amendments to the Irish Constitution and was mandated to consider a total of eight topics of constitutional relevance. This meeting in Limerick will help decide what issues should be looked at next by the Convention.

According to chairman of the Convention, Tom Arnold, the meeting gives Limerick people the opportunity to have their voices heard.

“The Convention has been promoting participative democracy in Ireland since it was established last year. We have held regular meetings across the country and have heard many different opinions on issues of huge constitutional importance. It is important that the voices of citizens in all areas of Ireland are heard and this is the primary aim of the Convention,” said Mr Arnold.

“The Constitution is the document of the people, only they can change it and this is the opportunity for the public to express themselves,” he added.
