Official opening of Doras Luimni new offices
Doras Luimní is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization that promotes and upholds the human rights and wellbeing of migrants at a local and national level. Last week saw an event, which marked the official opening of Doras Luimní’s new offices in O’Connell Street by Limerick County Cathaoirleach Cllr John Sheahan and Cllr Gerry McLoughlin. The event was also an opportunity to highlight the regional launch of iReport.ie, an online racism reporting system developed by the European Network Against Racism Ireland (ENAR), which enables anyone who has experienced or witnessed racism to record it onto a national database. Speaking at the event Doras Luimní CEO Karen McHugh tells me, “We are delighted with our new premises here at central buildings. Relocating an organisation is a massive undertaking, logistically and financially, and we are very grateful to all those who assisted and supported us during this time. We are extremely lucky to be accommodated by United Presbyterian and Methodist Church in Limerick city centre. Since the move our direct support services have been busier than ever. We are very happy to be able to keep our doors open for now but in order to continue to provide our services to those who need them we must continue to generate funds. On that note our next fundraising event, a Monster Table Quiz is taking place on Wednesday, October 30 at Collins Pub in Dooradoyle and we hope it will be well attended and supported.” Tables of four are €20 and well-loved Limerick actor, director, writer and man-about-town Myles Breen is Quiz MC for the evening so there’s sure to be lots of serious fun and games for everyone who attends!
