An International Rohingya Remembrance Day took place on Saturday, August 25 in Carlow College.

The family-friendly day - organised by Rohingya Action Ireland - commemorated members of the Rohingya community who were killed, attacked and displaced on August 25 last year in Myanmar. 

It was a day of celebration to acknowledge Rohingya ethnicity and share stories, memories and solidarity with the Rohingya people.
