Over 60’s Group

The group has been in existence for 30 years.

The over-riding aim of the group is to facilitate interaction and companionship for those aged 60 years and over in Blessington and its surrounding area.

There are two group leaders, Mairéad and Pauline. Membership of the group is open to all over 60 years. Our oldest member is 92 years young.

There are over 25 members of the group.

We meet every Thursday night between 8pm and 10pm in the Blessington Education Centre on the Baltinglass Road.

Everybody is welcome – just come along on a Thursday night. Men especially welcome! There is a small cover charge of €2 to cover tea, coffee and biscuits.

The Group participates in many activities including arts & crafts, angel healing, bingo, cards, gardening, flower arranging, physiotherapy, Garda visits, community awareness, handbag exchange.

We hold a Christmas party each year.

We will be having a History Night in the near future.

This group is a voluntary organisation and therefore has to fundraise to buy equipment for arts & crafts etc. Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

If you could give your time to the group to talk on a topic of interest to you or to conduct activities with the group please get in touch with us. Your help would be wonderful.

There is a great sense of family within the group.
