IRELAND was one of 45 countries that took part in the making of a special video for World Down Syndrome Day.

The video, titled Let Us In, was made to help promote the inclusion of people with Down Syndrome and features young men and women from around the world, including Indonesia, Norway, Mali and Pakistan.

Representing Ireland were Laura Jane Dunne and David Clarke, who can be seen at 2:30 minutes into the video.

The video aims to help create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome.
