COPE Galway Waterside House Poster Campaign

On Friday 27th November, COPE Galway, Waterside House launched its poster campaign. The campaign was launched by the Connaught Rugby squad with the tagline “REAL MEN SAY THERE ARE NO EXCUSES FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN”. The reference to “REAL MEN” is to draw attenstion to the fact that in general sportsmen provide very positive role models for many men and as such thay are ideally placed to deliver powerful messages about men’s behaviour.

Further information is available at 091-565985 or watersidehouse@copegalway.ie
