Some of our residents had personal connections to Eamon De Valera including Nora O'Gorman who spent over 30 years working as a care taker of De Valera's cottage and Helen Mullane who met him in Charleville in 1971. Mary O'Riordan (pictured with Mr O Cuiv and volunteer Jackie Ryan below) had a long chat with him about times past.

We were delighted to see some of the photos taken on Friday appear in this week's Vale Star.

A big thank you to Mr O Cuiv for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit Beech Lodge!
