Our Aims and Objectives

THE THOMAS FRANCIS MEAGHER FOUNDATION WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2013 TO PROMOTE PRIDE IN AND RESPECT FOR THE IRISH FLAG AND THE UNDERSTANDING OF ITS SYMBOLISM AND MEANING FOR PEACE, IN PARTICULAR AMONG YOUNG PEOPLE IRRESPECTIVE OF ETHNICITY, CREED OR GENDER. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ALL THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF IRELAND, INCLUDING THOSE WHO CONSTITUTE THE ‘NEW IRISH’, ARE MADE AWARE OF THE FLAG’S MESSAGE, AND ARE FULLY INCLUDED IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING IT A REALITY BY MAKING A SIGNIFICANT AND MEANINGFUL CONTRIBUTION AS ACTIVE CITIZENS. EACH YEAR, WE SEND OUT A FUNDRAISING PACK TO EACH OF OUR REGISTERED SCHOOLS, WHICH INCLUDE FLAG LAPEL PINS FOR THE STUDENTS TO SELL TO RAISE FUNDS FOR A CHARITY OR PROJECT OF THEIR CHOICE. WE ALSO PROVIDE SCHOOLS WITH PLANS FOR HOW TO CELEBRATE FLAG DAY, AND FLAGS FLOWN FROM 33 THE MALL.
