TEES Disco

TEES Disco at Daghda Church 14th December


As part of our service provision, we organise Summer outings in groups to places chosen by our service users as part of their PCP. This is a photo of a day trip to Lahinch which included a walk on the beach some shopping, lunch out, and a motivational speech on how we can improve our lifestyle. Even though it was a brief speech it covered several aspects, such as family, work, inner peace, health tips, etc… We were given some nice souvenirs at the end, some pens, water bottles, and samples of natural supplements for us to try out, they said that if we liked them we could click here and purchase a 30 day package.

Creative Show – Channel Surfing


A collaboration with Limerick Youth Theatre and Daughters of Charity

The Daughters of Charity and Limerick Youth theatre with the help of Lisnagry Association, Limerick City VEC, Belltable Arts Centre and top Limerick Theatre Arts Crew made an amazing show possible, which had a variety of acts, dance pieces and comedy adverts. 17 dancers, 20 actors, 4 directors, 1 curator & 1 choreographer. The show was 20th June 2011 @ Belltable Arts Centre.

This was a really great show, we had to do a lot of practice at the week end but it was worth it.

Julie’s Traffic Lights

Julie Normoyle again succeeded in getting a well needed crossing at the Garvey Centre. Previous to this Julie worked tirelessly addressing local politicians to get a crossing at the Peoples park in Limerick so we could reach the park with greater ease at lunch times.

Link Project

The Link Project is an off shoot of the Garvey Centre.   It began as a pilot project one day per week in May 2011 and is running full time since late September 2011.   The project currently has six members and our aim is to gain and maintain independence,   freedom of choice and to integrate.   We will develop links with existing DOC service community groups both local and national.

We have interests in education, current affairs, health and wellbeing, local and national history, the environment and social outings.

We are also working towards development hand crafts which we will sell at Limerick’s Milk Market on 8th December.

Some of the courses so far enjoyed in the wider community include zumba, flower arranging and cooking.   We have also activity supported many events and exhibitions and have had a successful stall in the milk market.

Our motto is “TO BE ALL WE CAN BE“

Working under the theme ‘What Inclusion Means to Me’, over 600 adults with an intellectual disability entered an art competition as part of Inclusion Ireland’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations.

We had great fun with this project and from the Tait art group 4 artists entered the competition. You can see their work here.

Artists Guggi and Dorothy Cross judged the art competition and emerged with 49 finalists. From the 49 finalists, we were delighted that Paul Clohessy was chosen as one of them.

The winners were announced at the exhibition launch on the 4th November and to our delight, Pauls painting, The Pub, was chosen in 3rd place. We are very proud of Paul and his achievement.
