The young people attending the AGM represented the following Dublin City local areas: North West,South East,Central,South Central and North Central. At the AGM a facilitated workshop is held to discuss topics that are relevant to young people. The topics discussed this year were: cyber bullying,play facilities and mental health. From the above topics the young people voted on one that they want Comhairle to focus on in the year ahead.
