Parents and Friends Website Launch

The Monaghan Branch of Parents and Friends launched their official website on Saturday 12th of November in the Peace Link in Clones. We are very lucky to have Minister for Disabilities Finian Mc Grath in attendance and all the organisations connected to the launch were there to give all an idea of the work they do and show how they can be of help to you. It is however important to build on this and raise the public and indeed the political awareness of the issues that need to be addressed.
