It’s been a busy week at the Mens Group this Easter.
We packed a lot into the last few days .
In our Cookery Class we made delicious hot cross buns.
Samaritan Outreach Volunteers Ann & Patrickcame in to visit us and gave a very informative presentation on their work and facilitated a group discussion about looking after our mental health.
We were all presented with Easter Eggs too. Thanks Ozanam House!
Samaritans Presentation on Thursday
Easter Eggs are always a welcome treat!
Sadly, we lost one of our members this week with the passing of John Sheekey (RIP).
John was a popular guy in the group and was always up for having fun. He always had a smile on his face.
We will miss you John and hope that you are smiling down on us all here.

This week we commenced Walking Football sessions on Tuesday in Ballybough Community Centre. 8 of the men took part and had great fun while also being active. Their positive experience and feedback has encouraged some of the other members to join them next week. We’d like to say a huge thanks to Fergal Scally, Sports Officer from Dublin City Council for arranging the sessions.
Thursday was less active with some of the guys taking part in the weekly cookery class. On the menu this week was Chicken Caesar Salad which was delicious!
It’s been another active week for the Men’s Group with lots of chats, games of pool, cooking and some friendly competition when Scrabble was played on Thursday.
On the cooking menu on Thursday there was spaghetti bolognese. What wasn’t eaten in the cookery room was parceled up for the guys to take home.
The Men’s Group returned this week. Like many of us, they had a quiet Christmas period and were happy to be back socialising with thier peers in the group.
Bingo was popular this week with 2 sessions taking place on Tuesday and Thursday with some practical prizes on offer.
