Social Inclusion Week:
Annette Halpin Memorial Tea Dance
Thursday 23 November 2017
4.00 pm - 7.00 pm
Red Cow Inn, Clondalkin
This event has been organised as part of Social Inclusion Week for the Active Retired living in the South Dublin County Council area. Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Cllr. Paul Gogarty will officially open the Tea Dance at 4.00 pm.
This Tea Dance brings together volunteers and members of groups from all over the county. There was an overwhelming response for tickets for this event and the Tea Dance is completely booked out.
The numbers of persons living in the county aged 65 and over is set to rise over the next number of years. This aging population offers both challenges and opportunities to the community. A lot of the work with the elderly population in the County is carried out by volunteers all over the county and this is greatly appreciated by the people that avail of the services and also by the local authority.
South Dublin County Council is working in partnership with many local organisations and statutory agencies to enhance the services to elderly people living in the county. Tús Nua the Older Person’s Council for South Dublin is now established and is a platform for discussion about issue affecting them and social interaction.
The Tea Dance is named after our late colleague Annette Halpin who played an integral role over the years in organising the Tea Dance.
