Thursday, 2nd of July 2015: RTÉ’s youth presenter Stephen Byrne is pictured with Jasmine Okeyemi (12) from Tipperary Town of the TRYS (Tipperary Regional Youth Service) who were attending the Irish Cancer Society’s X-HALE Youth Awards 2015. Almost 300 young people from 41 youth groups around the country attended the event to see films and community action projects, which they had created themselves, on the big screen in the Lighthouse Cinema, Smithfield.
Calling themselves #theXgeneration to highlight that they can be Ireland’s first smoke-free generation, the youth groups are using their projects to tackle smoking and empower others to follow their lead.
