Co-operative Housing Ireland is always delighted to provide our members and those interested in cooperatives with the opportunity to attend events that encourage and promote the cooperative ethos. This coming April we, in collaboration with a number of others, including Forsa trade union, the Dublin Food Co-op, the Dublin Brewing Co-op and the Society for Co-operative Studies in Ireland, have a full calendar of events lined up for you to join us at.
