The Legacy of War

“If diplomacy and dialogue do not replace war and the arms trade then the world at large will suffer the consequences for decades to come.” That’s according to Senator Labhrás Ó Murchú,  speaking in Seanad Éireann. 

“The number of flash points has now reached dangerous proportions and if we do not find a way back from the brink then we face a very ominous future. If the billions spent on war were used to alleviate suffering in so many under-developed countries, a new culture of tolerance and understanding could emerge.” 

Sennator Ó Murchú was speaking ahead of the launch by broadcaster Sile Seoige of 'Trad for Trócaire', a new fundraising event organised by Comhaltas Ceoltóiri Éireann to raise much needed funds to fight global poverty and support some of the poorest families around the world.
