dy'town ex-prisoners organise
The first general meeting of Cumann Na nIarchimí Baile Andarsan is to take place on Sunday 21 May at 3pm in the Andersonstown Social Club in West Belfast.
About 70 or so ex-prisoners from the area have been involved in discussions on the need to set up the committee to represent the needs of former POWs.
In February an ad hoc committee was formed and compiled a list of people, going back to the 1940s, who had been in jail.
One of our objectives is to encourage ex-prisoners to develop ideas and skills by becoming involved in the running of the group in order that they be further encouraged towards active citizenship.
A reunion function will be held in the Andersonstown Social Club on Saturday 20 May. There will be guest speakers and a late bar, Táille £2.
