This is an event run yearly on the second Wednesday in June by our club when we entertain the children from The COPE Foundation.

Kids Out this year was another great success. The young people were entertained by visits to Chuckies and McDonalds organised by Tim Murphy and his team. We rounded off the day with a trip to McDonalds and a goody bag for each child. Great credit is due to Tim and his team and all our club members who provided the transport for the children and indeed all the drivers from our neighbour clubs who assisted on the day to make it a most memorable occasion for the children.

Presentation of Teaching Tablets to Brothers of Charity, Cork

The Brothers of Charity Services in Ireland provide a variety of services and supports to approximately 6,500 people with an intellectual disability or autism, and their families, throughout Counties Clare, Cork, Galway, Kerry, Limerick, Roscommon, Tipperary, and Waterford.

Following on from a most moving and challenging presentation by Lorna Barrett, Speech and Language Therapy Manager and Caitríona Ní Charragáin of the Brothers of Charity, it was decided to donate three Augmentative and Alternative Communication Devices (ACC Tablets) to the Charity. The tablets were sourced from Safe Care Technologies and funded from the club's fundraising projects and by direct donations from club members.
