Life is For Living is a new publication of Age & Opportunity. With contributions from well-known people such as writer Edna O’Brien, international rugby player Tony Ward, journalist Olivia O’Leary, musician Christy Moore and artist Pauline Bewick.
The aim of Get Vocal was to strengthen the voices of older people in Ireland by increasing their capacity to make themselves heard. It supported groups and networks to develop ways of speaking out on the issues that matter to them and to spark initiatives that help society to understand their needs and their problems, as well as their hopes. To speak out effectively, groups and networks have built up their ability to advocate on behalf of older people.
As part of Age & Opportunity’s Arts & Culture programme, the Samhain celebrates the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain and explores the rhythms of life and death through the creative arts.
Go for Life is the national programme for sport and physical activity for older people in Ireland. It is run by over 1,200 volunteers who we call PALs.
