|dc.description||Older and younger people have a lot to learn and share with one another and this year provides an ideal opportunity for both young and old to discover and explore the many challenges facing them as citizens of our community. I congratulate the National Council for the Elderly for publishing this excellent In Due Season programme. Its purpose is to promote positive attitudes to ageing and to older people in a real and practical way, through the classroom. I am sure that it will achieve its aim and assist the younger and older generations deepen their mutual respect and sense of solidarity. Misunderstandings based on lack of knowledge can sometimes create barriers hetween generations. I believe that the In Due Season programme will encourage young people to appreciate the contribution which the oldest generation has made and continues to make to our society. Niamh Bhreathnach TD.
