Embedding Equality and Human Rights
We have organised an Equality Day, entitled “Embedding Equality and Human Rights,” on 5th December 2016 to mark the UN Human Rights Day (10th December 2016), with a strong focus on speakers who will address equality and human rights in the broadest terms, on cross-cutting initiatives or interventions.
Speakers at this event include Emily Logan – Chief Commissioner, Irish Human Rights & Equality Commission, Dr Austin O’Carroll – GP, Paralympian and Disability Advocate and Norah Gibbons – Chair, Tusla Child & Family Agency.
We are also holding a panel discussion with key personnel from Public Services in Cork City, on embedding human rights and equality in agency practice.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Using Cork Opera House/Christy Ring Bridge as a starting point, you will need to cross over ‘Christy Ring Bridge’ and ensure you are on outer lane to turn left immediately after crossing bridge.
The road immediately splits in 2, bear right up the hill. You will see the ‘Dominican centre’ and ‘John Buckley Sports shop’ continue forward up this hill.
Continue to the next set of traffic lights. The road splits in 2 here, bear left up the hill.
Continue forward to the next set of traffic lights. The ‘North Cathedral’ will be on your right. Continue straight ahead, you are now on Cathedral Road.
Continue straight up this hill until you reach the top, you will pass another ‘church’ on the right, continue straight ahead. The road veers to the right, you will see the ‘Garda Station’ and the ‘Credit Union’ your left.
Continue on and you will see ‘Centra’. Turn left at ‘Centra’ you are now at the entrance to ‘St. Mary’s Campus’
