Event Description

We had a very successful Yesterday’s Gone but the Memories live On event in central library on Friday 13th May, with 35 older people from the 65 + group and 6 people from Active retirement group in Letterkenny. Grainne Haines from Active Retirement Ireland spoke about active EU Citizenship and what a difference it has made to her life and to the lives of Active Retirement Ireland members . Grainne was very entertaining and finished off with a lovely poem about wearing purple when ‘I am 80 years old’.

The musicians Martin McGinley, Ted Ponsonby & Triona Sweeney sang and played music from 1916. Martin told stories and read articles that had been published in the local newspaper around the same era.

Everyone enjoyed the event and a few people got up and danced.
