It first started with the idea of entering the Show racism the red card competition again. First we had a group discussion and talked about all the different people from different cultures and countries we meet on a daily basis.
The young people came up with an idea of doing the map of Ireland. Then we continued our discussion and the idea of putting a different country flag for every county to represent all the cultures in Ireland. As time went on and we had our 32 counties picked we decided to put religious and cultural symbols around the outside of the flag. On Wednesday 10th April the group went to the Aviva stadium for the showcase event.
The young people were all excited about it because we were going to see celebrities such as Kevin Kilbane, Jason Sherlock and Eoghan Harrington. We won a plaque wit our name on it and an ipad which we will raffle off to raise funds for the group!
