Half Yearly Meeting

IMPERO meets again in the affable surroundings of The Strand Hotel, Omeath. Is it just a question of business as usual or will the meeting see some important new departures for this small but seminal organisation?

Notice of Meeting

A special meeting of IMPERO will take place in The Strand Hotel, Omeath, Co Louth on Saturday, 4 November 2006, commencing at approximately 2.00 p.m. You are invited to attend.

The meeting will be preceded by a plain lunch starting at 1.00 p.m. If you wish to partake in this lunch please let me know beforehand because the hotel only caters for occasional meals and, ideally, I should let them know before 2 November the exact number for the meal. You can contact me on 042 9371310 or 087 9739945. Bring a friend if you wish - you will be more than welcome to do so!


Sean Crudden

N.B. the text of most of the submissions made by IMPERO over the past decade and a half or more are published in www.iol.ie/~impero/ which is a web-page called "SEQUENS Magazine." This is more-or-less the official web site of IMPERO. On-line computers are available in most libraries and in the County Hall, Dundalk. So - even if you have no on-line computer of your own - you could study some of the submissions in one of those places in preparation for the meeting on 4 November.

A special meeting of IMPERO took place in The Strand Hotel, Omeath, in the afternoon of Saturday 4 November 2006.

Present were, Archbishop Michael Desmond Hynes OMA (vice-chairperson), Mrs Josephine Toner, Ms Annie McDonnell, Mrs Mary Gaskin, Tom Johnston, Kevin Hynes, Mrs Anne Muldowney (chairperson), Sean Crudden (secretary).

Apologies were received from, Fr Hal Somerville, Teddy Crudden (joint-treasurer), Margaret Rogers, Ann Rogers, Bishop Tom Daly OMA (president).

The secretary read the minutes of the previous meeting and they were adopted on the proposal of the Archbishop seconded by Kevin Hynes.

Arising from the minutes it was decided

· To contact Gerard Roddy, HSE, to solicit funding for a video on isolation and depression. If funding became available the work should go ahead without delay.

· To try and elicit a response from Geoff Day of the national suicide prevention office to IMPERO’s proposal on hostels/refuges for suicidal people.

A letter from Mary Ann McGlynn was read on the issue of mentoring. Anne Muldowney was delegated to attend a meeting in Drogheda on the subject in the following week.

A letter from Lucy Cusack, An Comhairle Eolaiochta, in response to an IMPERO submission was read.

The secretary read four submission he had made on behalf of IMPERO since the last meeting to

· An Comhairle Eolaiochta, on research in the field of mental health

· EC, in response to Green Paper on mental health

· Department of Health, on the proposed Medical Practitioners Bill

· NESF, to their task-force on mental health.

The submissions were approved and while the fourth one was deemed "hard-hitting" the secretary was instructed to go ahead and put it up on the IMPERO web-site along with the other submissions (which were already there).

The secretary said the discussion mooted by Bertie Ahern, An Taoiseach, on the rights of children would have ramifications throughout society.

It was felt that IMPERO’s present level of activity was adequate. Without any further fund-raising this activity could be sustained for a further 12 or 18 months. It was felt that funding could become available under NS arrangements arising out of the recent St Andrew’s Agreement. It was also suggested that IMPERO should seek a patron/sponsor. The name of Lord Ballyedmond was mentioned in this context.

Mrs Gaskin suggested that IMPERO might benefit from publicity in some of the more prominent national newspapers.

The next meeting was fixed for Saturday 28 April 2007 in The Strand Hotel, Omeath, Co Louth. The meeting will follow a lunch in the hotel which will commence at 1.00 p.m.
