FIGHTING UNEMPLOYMENT JOB SEEKERS’ EXPO - FRIDAY 26 th April 2013 Northside Civic Centre, 12pm – 2pm Dear Resident As your local TD, I am continuing to tackle the unemployment crisis on the Northside every day. Although nationally the unemployment rate has fallen slightly, this issue remains an absolute priority for me and for the Labour Party in Dublin. The issues of Youth Unemployment and LongTerm Unemployment are of particular importance. Last year, I held two successful events in Donnycarney and Kilmore West to help inform jobseekers of training opportunities and jobs available locally. Now I have organised another Jobseekers' Information Day in the Northside Civic Centre, Bunratty Road, Coolock on Friday April 26th from 12pm to 2pm. If you are unemployed, or if you care about someone who is unemployed, I would be delighted to meet you at this event and to discuss training and job opportunities with you further. The following organisations will be in attendance: ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■

JobBridge FÁS Citizen's Information Centre Jobcare Springboard Northside Partnership Irish National Organisation of the Unemployed (INOU) National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA)
