AUGHRIM

Active Retirement

What a lovely event we had on Sunday, June 12, as we greeted the day with music and song. Thank you to all who contributed. Even the weather was kind to us as we sat outside in the sun from 8 a.m.

Monday afternoon clinics are back in Aughrim – by appointment only. This doesn’t compare to what we used to have, but is the best we can hope for at this time.
