Burren Law School 2015 - 'Privacy in the 21st Century'
May 1-3, 2015
Another great gathering in Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare of legal minds, literary giants, NGO workers, historians, politicians, educators, artists and many more. The Burren Law School is an annual conference which aims to recreate the tradition of legal learning associated with the Brehon Law Schools, allowing the past to illuminate the present in what is characteristically a very stimulating weekend.
This year the working title was 'Privacy in the 21st Century', we had some great discussions, illuminating presentations and were honoured to have such guest speakers as;
I was delighted to attend just now the launch of the Yes Equality bus which will be making a nationwide tour over the coming four weeks. It will be calling for a Yes vote in the marriage equality referendum on 22 May. We have debated this issue already in this House, of course, but I ask colleagues to keep an eye out for the bus when it visits their local area and to tweet if they see it.
Today I attended the launch of the Amnesty International Ireland Report on ESC Rights, 'Bringing ESC Rights Home'.
Following the launch I used the opportunity through the Order of Business to ask the Leader to arrange a debate highlighting the economic, social and cultural rights that Amnesty Ireland have reported on.
