This video came about through the Comhairle na nÓg Liatroma AGM.
100 young people from all over Co. Leitrim attended our AGM at which the young people get to decide what youth related issues they feel is important to them and that they would like Comhairle na nÓg Liatroma to highlight and work on to help make an improvement in the lives of young people in Leitrim and nationally.
The young people decided that an educational video called “Use your Brain not your Fists” should be made to highlight the effects a fight on a night out can have on a young person’s life.
The Committee met with Rosie Dolan whose son Andrew was killed on a night out. Rosie is heading the campaign in Leitrim and nationwide.
The committee have secured funding from Creative Ireland and The North West Drug Task Force.
