Ireland Pride Network
The Pride movement in Ireland has undergone huge growth in the last two to three years. In March 2019, the board of EPOA invited all Pride organisers to meet with them in Belfast, and one of the outcomes of that meeting was a request for EPOA to facilitate the creation of an Ireland Pride Network.
We are grateful to Carlow Pride Festival for assisting us in the organisation of the event, and logistics.
An inaugural meeting is being held in Carlow on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th January 2020, kindly hosted by the Woodford Dolmen Hotel. Representatives of all Prides on the island of Ireland are invited to attend.
Through facilitated discussions and workshops, the meeting will consider:
- The scope and vision for the Ireland Pride Network
- Aims for 2020
- Mapping aims and objectives
- Formalising the Network
- Future coordination of the Network, and electing officers
The full agenda can be downloaded here.
There will be a dinner and social event on Saturday evening.
In addition to Pride organisers and representative(s) of EPOA, an invite will be extended to InterPride, the international Pride network.
The venue for the meeting is the Woodford Dolmen Hotel, who have generously agreed to host the event free of charge. We recommend that delegates stay at the hotel, but recognise that the costs may be too high for some. Other, lower-priced venues are available in Carlow.
