Pat Montague, will be breaking down and exploring the Irish political system and structure on Wednesday the 17th of June @ 6pm.

Pat is a leading communications consultant and regular Women for Election trainer. He is known for his clear and concise teaching method.

After receiving positive feedback from our previous Introduction to Political Systems and Structures session, we have decided to run this training again but with a later time for those who were unable to attend previously.

Our Working Together Webinars are free, however if you are in the position to make a donation, you can do so here.
