April 2016

Today (3 April) I will represent the Methodist church in Ireland at one of the State events to mark the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising. It is a inter faith event to remember the 485 people who died during the Rising, most of whom are buried at Glasnevin Cemetery, where the event is being held.

I will be joined by Charlotte Dougherty who say prayers with other young people to look to the future of Ireland.

Also a memorial wall will be unveiled to remember all who died, alphabetically, without reference to rank or organisation.

Attending the Society of Friends Yearly Meeting. They are really really nice - know their history and very much alive

Yesterday I was a guest at the 100th Graduation/ Passing Out of the PSNI - 49 excellent new constables.

Good quote from Chief Constable George Hamilton to the new police constables "As others run from harms way, you will be running towards it.

Interesting also that all the award winners were female officers.
