Share this article


President Higgins has underlined the importance of inclusion and social solidarity, in his Christmas message.

In a video released this evening, Michael D Higgins praises those who work with the marginalised.

He sends thanks to Irish peacekeepers abroad as well as emergency services staff who'll be working over the festive period.

He also argues that Ireland needs to welcome newcomers to our shores.

In the message, he observes: "There are those who are concerned for their access to health services and education, for the right to voice their concerns and experience full participation in our republic. 

"So, as we recall our shared vulnerabilities this Christmas, let us resolve to forge together a renewed sense of solidarity, one shaped to fit and encompass all our citizens."
