President Obama in Belfast

A group of 8 young people from our full-time Youth Centres, the Director and youth worker Keith Mc Caugherty attended the address of President Obama in Belfast on Monday 17th June in the Waterfront Hall.  Some of the young people had previously been involved in the Living Youth ‘Crossing the Bridges’ project and the words of both the President and Michelle Obama stimulated a lively and well-informed discussion about our shared future, the peace walls, religion and collaboration.  The group had great seats and the young people gave a thumbs up to the visit despite the 6am start.
