Age Friendly Roscrea

Roscrea Dinner Delivery service continues to operate 3 days per week

Monday, Wednesday and Friday meals are delivered- dinner and small dessert. Two dinners can be delivered each day if desired at a cost of € 5 per meal. Ring 0505 22550 for further information.

Senior Alert

Personal Alarms can be ordered through Age Friendly Roscrea. It is not necessary to have a landline.

Hopefully the alarm is never needed but in the event of an accident it can be a life saver

Rosie Greys

The Rosie Greys with Edel Carey and Susan Price will be back in the Courthouse from September 22nd at 2.30pm and every Wednesday thereafter.

Thursday Club

Going forward the Thursday club will meet on Friday afternoons at 2.30. A casual meet up with a cuppa and a chat, maybe a song or two, maybe a quiz or guest speaker. Ring 050522550

Roscrea Digest Volume 2

Work on a follow up to our successful Roscrea Digest is under way. Many novice writers contributed to the Digest and hopefully will again. The Digest was a miscellany with many subjects and styles of writing and will be a COVID-19 legacy

We are calling out for contributors to the Digest also for volunteers who might help with the production.
