April 2015

Happy Easter to All from staff at Applewood Homecare!  We can at last welcome in the Spring with the fine weather we have been having over the holiday.  Make the most of the break in the rain by taking the opportunity to get out and about in your garden or the park or indeed to the many events in your community.  Some of our staff here went into the activities on O’Connell Street and we have included below some upcoming historical society events this month as there is a growing interest with the upcoming 1916 centenary.

The Evergreen Club has Spring in their steps and are into week 2 of a hugely successful CoisCéim Dance Project.  There are a few more weeks to run on this if you are interested in checking this out.  As always the dancing continues with the Afternoon Tea Dance April 24th 2pm – 4pm.

The Menshed supported by Dublin City Council is launched this is continuous enrolement so if this might be of interest to you or someone you know might benefit please contact for more information.  They are currently working on ideas for projects.
