The Irish Cultural Centre in Blacks Road is hosting an election debate titled Irish Votes Count on Wednesday April 28 at 7pm.

This event will offer members of the Irish community the chance to quiz the candidates standing for Hammersmith in the General Election about issues that matter to them.

Says Jennie McShannon, CEO of the Federation of Irish Societies: " The result of the General Election will affect every Irish person in Britain.

" We want to show that the votes of the Irish in Britain cannot be ignored or taken for granted. We need candidates to recognise the contribution of our community and show they can respond to our specific needs and concerns."

This event is part of umbrella organisation, the Federation of Irish Societies' national campaign encouraging Irish men and women to exercise their right to vote and press local candidates for action on issues effecting the Irish in Britain.

It follows the launch of the Irish manifesto, which was launched in the House of Commons and supported by Ministers, Members of Parliament and the House of Lords and candidates from all three main parties.

Those who want to attend the debate are asked to RSVP by calling the Federation of Irish Societies on 020 7520 3130 or emailing info@irishsocieties.org
