Eating for Healthy Ageing

We are a group of UCC students who are carrying out a questionnaire about eating for healthy aging in older adults above 65. If any participants would like to take part in our survey we would appreciate it very much.
I will attach a poster and the link if there are any interested participants.
Thank you,
Mark Casey.


Cullen & District Special Needs Association Annual Weigh In

Feeling the post festive bulge? We are here to help.

Our 10 week Weigh In commences tomorrow night!

Local lady Marie O’Sullivan will oversee this years weigh in. Her expertise and knowledge in this field is a huge bonus. So how does it work? Just check in tomorrow night for your first weigh in and you will be given a sponsorship card.

Sponsorship card and funds raised will need to be returned on our final night. Continue to weigh in every Monday night to check your progress. How much does it cost? It’s free – however it is important to remember that this program is a vital fundraiser and all funds raised go to benefit those with Special Needs in our locality.

Irish Red Cross looking for NEW volunteers to give Therapeutic Hand Care

Irish Red Cross looking for NEW volunteers to give Therapeutic Hand Care in the care facilities of Kanturk and Millstreet locality.

The Irish Red Cross community support team is well established in Millstreet/ Kanturk Community Hospitals. We would like new members to join our team.

No past experience is needed, and volunteers will be trained to give a thorough and safe therapeutic hand care and massage to residents in the local hospitals and other venues in our local locality.  Provision of the service can help promote a sense of wellbeing for clients and a regular friendly visit from a local community volunteer.

The relaxing effects of the message is very beneficial, especially for those with painful or stiff joints, it can improve flexibility and suppleness, boost morale of patient and it’s a means of communication through touch and spending time with the person is the most valuable aspect of the service.

We also get involved with other events locally or regionally.

If you are interested in finding out more about this established service in our area and would like to join. Full training will be given and one becomes a member of Irish Red Cross.

Please contact
