Monday 11th March 2013 is Commonwealth Day, which in Dublin was marked by a gathering in the Royal Irish Academy, Dawson street hosted by the Reform Group. The meeting was addressed by Mary Kenny, the well known author, journalist and columnist. The Reform Group promotes closer relationships with the Commonwealth which includes near neighbours Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Malta, Cyprus and South Africa, among its 54 members. It is estimated that 21 million Irish people reside in the various Commonwealth countries. Reform believes that eventual membership of this entity would bring harmony to this island and contribute to trading, cultural and sporting links worldwide.
