Irish Dancing at Nazareth House Dublin 

Ready to Dance

The Healy School of Irish Dance came to entertain the residents on Saturday afternoon, August 28th. A great display of Irish dancing was put on and it was wonderful to see the different generations chatting and reminiscing together.

 Music by Mount Temple students

On Friday April 28th we had the launch of our Gift Register, a fund-raising initiative which allows interested people make a donation to purchase a gift for the new nursing home e.g. the price of a bed, chair, desk, curtains etc. There was a great attendance from residents, staff, families, suppliers and a few TD’s!  Our close neighbours Mount Temple Comprehensive School provided the music and displayed their wonderful talent. It was a most enjoyable afternoon.
