The Irish Senior Citizens Parliament urges all older, younger and people across the lifecycle to join us tomorrow at 1.15pm outside Dáil Éireann. Make a special effort to be there alone or with friends and family. Together we can make things happen, apart we will stand divided. Let’s show that the poor, the sick, the old, the young, the frail and disabled can stand up and be counted.
People from all across the country tell us they are travelling in numbers. Hopefully that is true but to make sure you will need to be there too. Don’t leave it to someone else.
Following the publication of the National Positive Ageing Strategy (NPAS) in April 2013, older people were expecting to see in BUDGET 2014 some tangible examples of the government commitment to NPAS. Remember NPAS is about ageing from the cradle to the grave.
Make an effort, be there in Molesworth Street tomorrow at 1.15 and show you care.
