On Monday 19th November Sarah, Sean and Rory attended a Comhairle na Nóg meeting in Croke Park. The lord mayor formally opened the meeting at 9:45am and told us the topics we would be discussing, these were: education, young people online, physical wellness & the environment. We got the opportunity to talk to existing Comhairle members about any questions we had. From this I learned that Comhairle members meet every month in Dublin City Council's building. The chairperson or secretary meet every 1-2 weeks.
