I was delighted with this invitation as I believe the work undertaken by individuals in the community and voluntary sector is second to none.” “Volunteers who give up their free time and dedicate themselves to helping others and their communities should be encouraged, supported and celebrated and so I am delighted to be here to wish Diarmuid ádh mór as he sets off on his London experience.” Murphy added, “I hope that Diarmuid will enjoy his trip and I would love to meet him on his return to hear how it all went.”
