The Resource, called “A Journey Together”  and published in the 16th of January is the result of a project, led by Cois Tine, that took place over the last two years.  This resource is unique as it is the result of a series of Workshops and Meetings, attended by Muslims and Christians.  These took place in Dublin, Limerick and Cork.

This project is co-financed by Cois Tine and the European Commission under the European Integration Fund and has been supported by Pobal the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration in the Department of Justice and Equality.
