Advice & Support Service News

We continue to distribute free food on a weekly basis and the number of people requiring this service has risen over the past months.  We have been extremely busy over the past few months with funding reports and funding applications.  More recently we have undergone an Audit which involved a significant amount of additional work as well as overseeing our many diverse projects.  We look forward to the coming celebrations this month & wish you all a very Happy St Patrick’s Day.

Social Inclusion Film Club

1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month at 1:30pm. The Film Club is open to anyone who feels isolated or needing an outlet where they can socialise in a warm and welcoming environment.  There is no cost to attend, no obligation to book in ahead you literally just turn up on your own or with some friends around 1:30pm on the day. Patricia and Christina, our fantastic volunteers, will be in attendance baking and serving lovely home baked scones and brown bread along with tea & coffee free of charge. We also hold a free raffle afterwards.   

Tuesday March 5th –  War of the Buttons The children of Ballydowse & Carrickdowse engage in battles in which they cut off the buttons, shoe-laces, belts and braces of their captured opponents. This gets their opponents in trouble with parents. They go to battle in mass groups of dozens, wielding sticks & slingshots. It’s a battle of strategic skills for the opposing leaders, including one scene in which the principal gang uses an ancient war trick to overcome their opponents with successful and itchy results.

Tuesday March 19th – Tara Road  Sometimes the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in someone else’s life!  An accidental phone call brings these two otherwise unrelated women together and in their mutual need for space & time alone, they agree on a two month house exchange. In swapping homes, both women slowly find healing and strength, through new surroundings and the kindness of others, gradually learning to accept the reality of their changed lives.
