The Gaisce ‘season’ is upon us and we are enjoying having school groups here, who are going for the Bronze Gaisce President’s award. There are four key challenge areas which include Community Involvement, Personal Skill, Physical Recreation and an Adventure Journey. That’s where we come in, on the Adventure Journey part. The students stay with us and over the course of a couple of days, they walk and hike many kilometers through the Ballyhoura Mountains.  It’s tough but very enjoyIMG-20160412-WA0002able and it’s a real opportunity for team building. Here’s our most recent gang, before they catch their bus back home after a great experience. Well done everyone!!

It was lovely to see the hostel returned back into the family home, for the weekend, with the celebration of my mother, Lucy Nunan’s 80th birthday. Great to have so many family around, thanks to all who stayed. We finished the celebration off with the very reverend Fr.Harry Parkinson, aka Fr.Haggis, reaching his 84th birthday in better shape than his nephew (me)who is exactly half his age!Fr.
