Former RTE star Theresa Lowe makes rare return to the spotlight for a good cause

Former RTE star Theresa Lowe took a break from her media hiatus all the name of a good cause.
Lowe has been a practicing barrister since 1997 when she left Montrose, but stepped back into the spotlight for a photocall highlighting Active Retirement Ireland's upcoming Marigold Festival.
She's no stranger to multi-tasking careers as she was studying law at King's Inns while presenting Where in the World? for seven years and is now specialising in criminal law as well as hosting media training seminars.
And elderly care is a cause close to her heart as she shared her own story of her late mother.
“It is important that we all embrace healthy and active living. There is a brilliant sense of community at the Marigold Festival - we really only get the best sense of community when we tap into our greatest natural resource - the wisdom of our elders," she said.
“I am hugely in favour of this Home Instead Senior Care initiative. I know, first hand, how important it was to my mother to be able to continue living at home right up to the end. The visits from family and neighbours, dropping in for a cuppa… the familiarity, the security and happiness of being home. I have no doubt that we got a few precious extra years with Mam because she was able to live at home”.
The Marigold Festival , run in partnership with Home Instead Senior Care, s in full swing and kicked off in Galway's Salthill Hotel, the first of nine events around the country with 2,000 people expected to attend this weekend.
