Tuesday Night Entertainment for the Elderly

elderly1Volunteers and members of the community at the first Tuesday night of entertainment.

Tuesday saw the first in what is hoped many nights of entertainment for the elderly members of the community thanks to volunteers from Dell.

As part of the company’s “Make a Difference” programme, volunteers attended and provided music and diversion for free.

If you would like to see what they got up to last week, have a look at our pix.ie album.

All are welcome to come along next week, and indeed every Tuesday!

Members of the community gathered yesterday to launch the expansion of Our Lady of Lourdes’ Estate Management scheme.

The aim of Estate Management is to ensure a safe and clean community, doing such things as removing litter from green areas around the estates of Our Lady of Lourdes.

The purchase of a new pick-up truck, (pictured here along with members of the Estate Management Committee) means that their capabilities are greatly expanded.

Cllr Ger Fahey was on hand to represent Limerick City Council at the launch.

During an unscripted speech, he paid tribute to those involved saying that Our Lady of Lourdes community should be thankful that they have such an active community centre.

A bouquet of flowers was presented to Katherine Kirby, in appreciation for her nine years of work with the Estate Management project.
