PPN Bulletin

Many thanks to all those people who came along to our PPN Plenary in St Patrick’s Cathedral last night.

Many thanks to Deputy Lord Mayor, Cllr Joe Costello, who launched the PPN’s Five Year Strategic Plan which was delivered by Ellenora Lynch and designed by Lisa Rossi. 

You can download and read the plan here.

Many thanks also, to the Very Revd. Dr William W Morton, Gavan Woods, Edwina Dewart and Catherine O’Toole for their speeches.  In particular, Catherine mentioned the PPN’s 2022 workplan and budgets, and you can download and read those documents here.

Many thanks also, to local film maker, Paul Woodward, who made a series of ten films for the PPN during 2021, and from which two were shown last night.  We will be uploading all the films shortly. 

And finally, thank you again to everyone from St Patrick’s Cathedral, especially Katie Conway, who made the event so special and to all those who came along and supported the work of the PPN. 

Thank you.
