IMPACT Insights series: film screenings

Following the success of IMPACT’s screening of Before the Flood earlier this year, the IMPACT Insights series continues with special film screenings taking place each month at IMPACT’s Dublin office in Nerney’s Court.

The films have each been specially selected as they deal with issues of interest to anyone working or active in the trade union movement. Each screening will include an expert guest speaker.

Each screening commences at 6pm and IMPACT will provide refreshments. If you’d like to attend simply register by contacting Joe O’Connor.
