The hopes for Ireland in 2016 are that there will be equality among all people living on the island. All
religions in the country will be respected; all citizens will have equal opportunities. Ireland will be
welcoming to new citizens. Every student will benefit from an excellent educational system that allows
each child to reach their potential. Each citizen will have a high standard of living and access to excellent
health care. The country will remain democratic and although a member of the European Union will be
independent. Each citizen will be respected and expect justice. The Irish language and culture will be
cherished to give all Irish people a national identity.
