To celebrate its 25th birthday, the Co-operation Ireland Legal Dinner committee and the charity have agreed to expand the outreach of the prestigious dinner to take in the financial and business community with whom the legal profession works and have as clients. 

The Co-operation Ireland Legal, Finance & Business Dinner will now take place on Thursday 03 October, 2024, at one of the capital’s newest and most iconic event venues, the incredible 5-star hotel, Raffles London at the OWO, Whitehall, London. 

A new opportunity for our friends and clients to join us in supporting Ireland’s leading relationships building charity, Co-operation Ireland.

The event promises to be a feast for the senses, all in aid of raising much needed funds for Ireland’s leading peace-building charity.”

About Co-operation Ireland 

45 years after its foundation in 1979, Co-operation Ireland continues to play a leading role in societal relationship building across all three strands of the Good Friday Agreement. The charity uses the principles of mutual respect and dialogue to work collaboratively with communities across the island through a range of facilitated programmes. We work to build a shared and cohesive society, by addressing legacy issues of the conflict and facilitating contact and collaboration between people from different backgounds across these islands.

Many of Co-operation Ireland’s current programmes focus on our young people, giving those who have not previously had contact, an opportunity to meet and work together to improve their understanding of each other’s cultures and traditions. They deliver mutually beneficial projects in their own communities, while experiencing the shared learning of partnership with other schools and youth organisations who come from either a different cross community or cross-border background.

The charity’s flagship programme for young people, the Co-operation Ireland Future Leaders programme, now in its third year, aims to create 1,000 Future Leaders by the end of 2025. It aims to empower the next generation of young leaders and peace builders, by equipping them with the skills, confidence and networks to make positive contributions to the future development of their own communities, while improving relationships on and between Ireland and the United Kingdom.
