Community Garden

We have recently started a community garden at the entrance to the club and want to make this a community garden. We need to keep it tidy, so we ask anybody passing by to pick weeds, give it a water on a hot day or add some plants/flowers. A huge thank you to Mike Hanley and everyone else involved in this great initiative.

Healthy Club

Our healthy club committee are facilitating another safeTALK (Suicide Alertness for Everyone), on Saturday 22nd June. Please see the link below to register.  We would encourage all mentors and parents to participate in this very important workshop.  Any questions please contact Audrey @ 087 2312560.

AIM: safeTALK is a 3½ hour ‘suicide alertness’ programme that prepares participants (over the age of 18 yrs.) to identify and engage with persons who may be having thoughts of suicide. Participants learn how to provide practical help by using the steps of TALK (Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep safe) and gain information on the supports and resources available locally, regionally and nationally. These specific skills are called suicide alertness and are taught with the expectation that the persons learning them will use them to help reduce suicide risk in their community.


Training: safeTALK (Suicide Alertness for Everyone) Training

Date: Saturday 22nd June 2024

Time: 9.30am-1.00pm

Location: Lucan Sarsfields, 12th Lock
