2018 at The Old Rectory Country House, Fenagh, Ballinamore, Leitrim, Ireland

It has been a great year at The Old Rectory Country House in Leitrim, with so much happening in many ways, both in our business and our family life.  We had so many lovely groups come to stay with us over the past year, our first being a bridge group from Bray.  We had quite a few quilting weekends this year with a very successful advanced quilting weekend towards the end of the year with two quilting groups coming together for the weekend.  By the end of the weekend it was hard to remember who was with which group they all got along so well together.  We had some very imaginative groups for Murder Mystery weekends over the year.  Our final weekend of the year was a wonderfully uplifting retreat with a phenomenal group of women.  All this year in the background was our new Marquee project and getting ready for its arrival and working towards the business it would provide us over the coming years.  It didn’t quite arrive in 2018 but it will be with us on the 7th of January 2019, so that is going to be a very exciting start to 2019.  I hope we will see you sometime in 2019 at one of the many weekends we will be hosting or offering this year.

Crumlin Children’s Hospital Dublin

Fund Raising for Crumlin Children’s Hospital

Fund Raising

Crumlin Children’s Hospital Dublin

Crumlin Hospital has been a part of our lives since Padraig was 5 days old, and recently Padraig had his last day in the hospital, and will now move on to St. James, he is very lucky his two main doctors also work in St James and it will be a clean transfer and he already has new appointments there.  As with any hospital experience there have been ups and downs, but overall Padraig’s story has been a very fortunate one, not all children with his condition are as lucky.  Crumlin Hospital and its staff have been more than good to Padraig and have always been interested not just in his physical well being but in his mental well being.  We will miss all the staff at the hospital, in particular Mr Brosnahan, Dr Watson and Eddette O’Dea.

Padraig’s life at Crumlin hospital took a different form for Aoife, she began funding raising for Crumlin in 5th class when she gave half her confirmation money and also fund raised at the school with Coppers for Crumlin and she gave the money to the hospital to buy Christmas presents for children who weren’t going to get home for Christmas.  For her second fund raising she worked with the play assistant in the oncology ward to buy items they needed for the play room.  On Padraig’s last day in Crumlin she donated €2,000 to the Dermatology ward which will go towards a mobile scanner unit. Thank you to everyone who supported her with her fund raisers over the last 8 years.
