Today marks two years since the invasion of Ukraine began, forcing millions of people to leave their homes, communities and country. The impact of the conflict was felt around the world, including here in the south-west of Ireland, where many communities have opened their doors to welcome people and families in their time of need.On this unfortunate anniversary, we want to express our continued solidarity, support and hope for a better future for the Ukrainian people and all victims of war, conflict and persecution.
