Community Relations Week runs from the 28th of September to the 4th of October and Newry, Mourne and Down District Council has put in place a programme of activity to celebrate the event.


The theme for 2015 is ‘One Place Many People’ and the Good Relations Unit of the Council has organised a series of lectures which will focus on themes such as women and children in the famine, flags and emblems, forgiveness, and the great war.


The programme includes a multicultural concert for all post primary schools in the district.  The concert will use music to recognise the diverse and intercultural society in Newry, Mourne and Down and will be a key tribute to recognise the theme of ‘One Place Many People’. 


Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Councillor Naomi Bailie said, “Newry, Mourne and Down District has a vibrant cohesive community which is reflected in the excellent services and participation across our community and voluntary sectors.  We hope community relations week will highlight the exceptional ethos of partnership working and community integration which Newry, Mourne and Down District is proud to showcase.”


Full details of these and other events organised in the district can be found on the Council’s Corporate website and Facebook page
