A sincere 'Thank You' to everyone who voted for Croí na Gaillimhe Resource Centre, St. Vincent de Paul, in the AIB Better Ireland Awards 2009 / 2010. Thanks to all of the votes we received, we were lucky to win second place and so have won a fantastic €3000.00 which will be used to support the 'Living Scenes' project. The project will start next September at the centre.

St. Patrick's Celebration

A 'St. Patrick’s Celebration' organised by Croí na Gaillimhe and COPE Galway and Age Action was held on Thursday 11th March at the Croí na Gaillimhe Resource Centre. The event included a delicious dinner, shared experiences from adult learners, a fantastic group relaxation session, individual neck massages, an Irish Dancing display by a Irish Dancing World Champion; finishing off with a group sing song. The participants joined us form all over Galway city to celebrate both St. Patrick's Day and also the joys of learning and celebrating together. The event was a huge success; we are all looking forward to the next celebration!! Have a look at the fantastic photos taken at the event by checking out our website Croí na Gaillimhe Photos

This is the second occasion that Croí na Gaillimhe, COPE Galway and Age Action have organised such a Celebration. The first event was called ‘Get Up & Go’and was held on the 30th September 2009. The aim of the event was to encourage older people to 'Get Up and Go' - to promote the clubs, classes and groups available for older people, where they can meet to learn and also to socialise. If you would like to see some of the photos taken at the 'Get Up and Go', then check out our website Croí na Gaillimhe Photos

We are looking forward to many more events.
