The Ukrainian Ambassador to Ireland, Her Excellency Ms. Larysa Gerasko, honoured an invitation to visit Gorey today where she thanked everybody for the support of Ukraine and Ukrainians who came to Ireland fleeing the war launched by Russia.

Cathaoirleach Cllr Pip Breen said; “It is a great privilege and honour for me to welcome the lady ambassador to Gorey”.  

Ms. Gerasko thanked Senator Malcolm Byrne and the members and officials of Gorey-Kilmuckridge Municipal District for the invitation to Gorey and for such a warm welcome “to this beautiful town.”

She visited Loreto School, Gorey Youth Needs Centre and Gorey Community School and was given a wonderful welcome and enjoyed a great rapport with the students.

“Now is the darkest time in the history of our country because we are defending our country and we are fighting for the existence of our country and existence and survival of our nation because one of the main goals of Putin is to exterminate our nation and destroy our country. I’m sure that we will defend and we will win.  

“We are suffering, of course, many losses. Thousands of our civilians have been killed by Russian military forces. All of us, we are praying for the survival of our civilians and our soldiers who have been fighting for more than two months,” concluded the ambassador.

To mark the visit of Ms. Gerasko, Cllr Breen made a special presentation during a short public reception at Gorey Municipal Buildings.
