WE were delighted to welcome Eamon O Cuiv TD to Beech Lodge last Friday.

Mr O Cuiv was in Bruree to Mr O Cuiv was in Bruree to speak about his memories of his grandfather Eamon De Valera, as part of the Gathering Celebrations

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!
