On Tuesday 24th of October University College Cork’s International Relations Society (IRSOC) had an information stand in Arás Na Mac Leinn to coincide with UN day. Members of the society throughout the day operated the stand and they had many materials with information on the UN.
Society Auditor, David Murphy said, “The IRSoc has been very successful at international conferences in New York, Harvard and in Canada. Building on this success, the society has become more active on campus this year, as shown by our well received student centre information stand for UN Day . “
UN Day has been celebrated worldwide since 1973 after the General Assembly passed a resolution calling on states to observe the 24th of October as UN Day as it is the anniversary of the coming into force of the United Nations Charter, which came into to force on the 24th of October 1945.
