Day trip to Connemara

The members of our Men's Group & Social Club have returned from a superb day-trip across the rugged landscape of Connemara. They took a comfortable bus and have visited many sites along the way. The weather was great, the food delicious and the laughter constant - or so we heard.

Do you know a man that's free on Thursday afternoon? If so, do tell him about our men's group - the group meets every Thursday from 3PM to 5PM. All men are welcome!

Creative Writing Group

Creative Writing Group 

Every Friday morning from 10.30-12.30am, Croi na Gaillimhe comes alive
 with the thoughts and views from a creative writing group. 

Consisting of 7-10 people, their ages, are wide-ranging.
Led by a very learned facilitator, John McGinnty, the group share their observations 
on life, personally or not, as it scurries around them. 
It’s where we have a great laugh on funny things people do or say and frank discussions on things that matter, socially and historical facts.  
Each member feels protected from the outside world, safe in a cocoon for two hours.       Though daunting to read ones material at first it soon becomes a second nature to share. 
After all, there is a book, waiting to be written, in all of us.
New members always welcome.

Drumming with the Young Hearts

YOUNG HEARTS - Intergenerational Project Tuesdays 10.30am -1.00pm 

Eamon has facilitated drumming sessions with the inter-generational group over the last three years. His workshops focus on respect, trust and participation, in a fun atmosphere. He taught the group some simple drumming rhythms and then combined them to make music. The energy from the group was amazing. Some of the adults had drummed with Eamon in previous years and were delighted at how different each session has been. The TYs enjoyed themselves so much that they are keen to get Eamon to come to the school and work with them there.

Positive ageing week


Positive Ageing Week 1-11 October celebrates the positive aspects of ageing and honours the contributions older people make to their communities. Many events are held throughout the country from coffee mornings to Golf tournaments.
We in Croi na Gaillimhe celebrated the start of positive ageing week in fine style with complimentary soothing hand massages from Alexander Technique Practitioner Michele Horgan.
 Michele gave a short talk and demonstration on the Alexander method and its benefits in releasing tension, de-stressing   and energising your life.  The photographs show Michele and members of our social club enjoying the benefits of therapeutic hand massage, and learning about balanced efficient and supportive postural habits through the Alexander technique.
