Latest Branch News:

Dublin Branch has had an eventful few months! We held our AGM on 23rd of February which was followed by a talk from Cathal Phelan, Speech Therapist from Personal Health. Cathal was excellent.

On Saturday 13th of April we held a mini Unity Walk in Harold’s Cross. A crowd of more than 100 turned out for our walk. It was a blustery pleasant day and everyone seemed to really enjoy the walk. We finished up in McGowan’s Pub for tea/coffee/soft drink and sandwiches. Tina and staff looked after us very well indeed. We were joined on the walk by Senator Kevin Humphries who is a great supporter of Parkinson’s. We also got a nice write up in the local magazine ‘Harold’s Express’.

Members of the Dublin Branch were also present at the protest outside Dáil Eireann on 11th April. We are delighted that we now have 4 Siel Bleu Exercise classes running in the Dublin area – one in Swords, Portmarnock, Harold’s Cross and Loughlinstown.  These are in addition to our two exercise classes in Clontarf and Donnybrook.

One of our members, Austin Hynes ( a member of Harold’s Cross and Loughlinstown exercise classes) will feature in the ‘I can’ campaign with Siel Bleu shortly.

Members of the DuSummer member’s meeting will take place

Our Summer members meeting will take place in the Marine Hotel in Sutton on the 9th June at 3pm and our speaker with be Isabelle Kelly, recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s, who will share her knowledge and wisdom on the subjects of Yoga, Meditation and Healing with us.

Dublin Branch have prepared a survey for research - details on page 9 of this magazine. We urge all members to fill it in. We keep our members informed by email and a

quarterly bulletin which we are starting to send by email and by post to those who have no

email.
