Our activities here in Portiuncula continue at pace and we are always looking for new ideas. We continue with our baking and gardening and outings. Crafts and bead making are proving a great choice. We made cribs, logs and crosses to sell for Christmas.

Highlights of 2018’s outings include our trips to Knock, Cavan, Hudson Bay and Carrick on Shannon.

Music therapy continues on Wednesdays with our talented music therapist, Aidan. Siel Bleu takes place weekly, providing physical and mental exercises. Mass is held twice a week in the nursing home plus residents can attend The Friary on Sundays.

We regularly have parties – any excuse – birthdays, St Patrick’s Day, Easter, Summer, Halloween, Christmas, and more! We are very grateful to the people that come in to entertain our residents, local choirs, musicians, singers and many other volunteers.
