Merriman Summer School returns to Ennis

Posted on July 21st, 2014

The 2014 Merriman Summer School will take place in Ennis, Co. Clare from August 13 to 17.

This year’s theme is ‘Emotional Life in Ireland’.  It is a timely topic for a country which has yet again been dealing with the aftermath of trauma as we listen to stories of hidden pregnancies, secret births and unacknowleged deaths. How do we deal with our emotions and their consequences? Are we better at it now than we have been? What legacies have been left by our difficulty in understanding and reluctance to deal with our emotions? These are some of the areas for discussion at this year’s Merriman Summer School.

Government must ensure that measures introduced in Budget 2015 support local economic development, encourage job creation and promote balanced growth.”
