2nd May


Book Launch: My Mate Manners and Etiquette for Cobh-Heads and Old Folks
Thursday 02 May at 4pm at Chill On The Hill

Two booklets have been collaboratively written to promote positive relations between youth and the older community of Cobh by Elizabeth Woods, Kevin Leong, Peter Nash, and the staff and students of YMCA Cobh and Cobh Youth Services (Chill on the Hill).

My Mate Manners is an illustrated booklet for 4-8 year olds on polite and respectful behaviour.

Loosely modelled around contemporary etiquette books, Etiquette for Cobh-Heads and Old Folks offers two complimentary sets of guidelines - one for young people and another for the older community - that exemplify respectful and considerate in a range of common situations. The booklet is informational but also serves as a social contract and as a symbol - display of the booklet in businesses, institutions and public organisations indicates sympathy with the booklet's intentions and signal safe and welcoming spaces for young people with the same understanding.

Both booklets will be launched on Thursday 02 May at 4pm at Chill On The Hill, 16 Midleton St, Cobh.

These events are in association with See you tomorrow and This Must Be The Place | Great Island.
