If anyone in surrounding areas would like to come to the Dr Martin Day centre, and needs transport, we would be happy to try and arrange same. If lack of transport is preventing people from coming to centre please contact us and we will do our best to sort the problem.
We were sad to hear the sad news of Mrs Duggan’s passing. She was a regular at the centre and really enjoyed our music every Wednesday afternoon. It was also sad to hear of the passing of local man, Victor Bowers. We would like to express our gratitude to the family for their kind donation to the centre.
Also, we would like to thank Fr Ned Hassett for his lovely Mass here in the centre on Thursday, and all the Masses he has said for us in the last year. We are sad to see him leaving the community and wish him all the best in his new parish.
I would like to thank Seán O’Brien for thinking of us, when the active retirement group Dolmen were making their annual donation from their Christmas party. A big thank you to the group who kindly donated 310 Euros to the centre.
