Have your say!
The Dáil may have risen for the summer and the Seanad may have cleared the way for the people to vote it out of existence, but democracy never rests!
The BIG HOUSE Parliament – a citizens’ forum will sit in the ballroom of Castletown House & Parklands from 12.30pm on August 3rd, 4th and 5th to hear proposals for how we can change Ireland for the better.
Here’s your opportunity to make your pitch in front of your peers and in the company of people like broadcaster Philip Boucher-Hayes; musician Julie Feeney; and economist Stephen Kinsella, presided over by guest Speakers: Mary O’Rourke, Fergus Finlay and Brendan Halligan.
Let’s hear your one line proposal for making a better country right here and we’ll choose the best to deliver their pitch in person. Make your suggestion our facebook page, on twitter @bighouse_fest #BHParliament or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . We will pick one winner per day of the festival, who will get to BE A PART of the BIG HOUSE Parliament (and of course get a ticket to that day of the festival). Winners announced Wednesday 31 July.
