War vets hospital offers brilliant day out at big garden-fete fundraiser Entrepreneurs to inspire at summit An evening of music for Joyce lovers

Leopardstown Park Hospital in Foxrock has quite rightly earned itself a fantastic reputation as one of the best HSE-run 'care of the elderly' facilities in the country. The hospital was established in 1917 and funded by the British government to care for war veterans. There are now about 60 war veterans, and the remainder of the around 160 residents in the hospital are funded by the HSE.

Like every other State-funded facility, Leopardstown Park Hospital has to raise funds to buy basics for their residents and the annual garden fete is the major such funding event of the year.

If anyone has reason to be thankful for care at the hospital or if they simply fancy a really brilliant day out, get along to the garden fete in Leopardstown Park Hospital in Foxrock next Sunday, September 12, from 1pm to 5pm. For further details, call Florence on 086 8762148.

Entrepreneurs to inspire at summit

Ireland's celebrity entrepreneurs are to take to the stage at a unique conference -- The Business Summit at the K Club in Co Kildare on the weekend of September 17 and 18, organised by Mark Wynne and Geraldine Daly.

Such household names as Nichola Byrne, Eddie Hobbs, Sean Gallagher, Liam Griffin and Clodagh McKenna will be taking part. All speakers are experts in their field and will be lecturing to inspire businesses back to health.

On the theme of 'Growing Your Own Business Through Recession', the aim of the conference is to help kickstart the spirit of Irish entrepreneurialism. These business leaders are putting their name to the summit because they are convinced by the need for targeted business support delivered by those best placed to provide it in this precarious economic climate. The aim of the summit is to equip Irish companies with tools and real-world strategies to improve their bottom lines.

An evening of music for Joyce lovers

JOYCEANS will love 'A Musical Evening With James Joyce', which takes place tonight at 8pm in the James Joyce Centre on North Great George's Street, Dublin.

An evening of songs such as Moore's Oft in the Stilly Night, The Sally Gardens and I'll Walk With You will feature in the evening with tenor Noel O'Grady accompanied by pianist Susan Keane.
