We had our after school children learn computer coding in February , an amazing night of Ozanam Come Dancing in Liberty Hall in March, a great intergenerational event at Easter between our Active Retirement Group and our Pre-schoolers, another incredible summer project, more amazing volunteers, continued learning as well as new classes in our Adult Education programmes, talented students supporting our Men’s Group and of course the honour of having President Michael D. Higgins coming to visit us in December. What a year it has been.
