AGEISM IN IRELAND

A SUMMARY OF TWO RECENT REPORTS

By Dore Fischer

 

Dear Colleagues,

Pre – covid we had history talks on the Royal Canal and the Grand Canal, and also a guided walk on a section of the Royal canal that finished in Dublin’s Secret Garden, what about the history of the Railways you might ask.

From Athlone, Sean O’Cluaid RMA’s Midland branch secretary is coming to our rescue. With an engineering background Sean is a Railway Enthusiast and owner of a substantial amount of working model railway rolling stock and related equipment. He has kindly volunteered to come to Dublin and give a talk about HERITAGE MATTERS - MAINLY TRANSPORT RELATED under the headings:- Heritage, The Midland Great Western Railway – A Famous Irish Engineer – World First’s in Ireland – Personal Connections & The Problem with Heritage.

Sean served 34 years as a lecturer in Motor/Mechanical Engineering in RTC/AIT having been through the Teacher Training Course in Ringsend 1970 – 72 and other qualifications. He is hoping to meet some class colleagues from that period when he visits the Teacher’ Club.

AGEISM IN IRELAND

Dore Fischer is our Dublin Branch Committee Equality Officer.

She is also a member of the Research Advisory Group of Age & Opportunity which is one of the 7 members of Age Alliance.

As a member of the Advisory Group Dore is well connected to the workings of the organisation and is ideally placed to talk about what they do.

The first part of her talk will be a brief summary of the findings of five citizen assemblies which Age & Opportunity conducted in 2021 (titled: 'Is ageism ever acceptable? Dore was a member of the advisory group for these assemblies and also participated in one of them.

The second part of the talk will focus on the main findings of the report by the Age Alliance which was published last week (titled: 'Telling it like it is: combating ageism - a snapshot').

She will also give a brief account on how she got involved in a research project, conducted by Age & Opportunity, on ageism during the pandemic.

We are looking forward to meeting our familiar and fresh faces in the Teachers’ Club on Friday 24 February.

Kind Regards

Eamonn

10:30 am: 2023 AGM


09/05/2023

 

The AGM 2023 will be held in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel, Athlone on Tuesday May 9th

The AGM will follow the usual format:

Registration 10.30 - 11.30, followed by the AGM, with a light lunch available-at your own expense - and finishing at 4.30 pm.  Dinner will follow at 7.00 pm.

As previously agreed, the Spring Break will be combined with the AGM, but will not interfere with it.

10:30 am: Spring Break 2023


09/05/2023 11/05/2023

 

The Spring Break will be held in Shamrock Lodge Hotel, Athlone on the 9th, 10th and 11th of May 2023

The Spring Break arrangements are:

€85.00 pps, €105 Single per night DBB.  Tours will be organised  - probably including Athlone Castle and Museum, Clonmacnoise, a Shannon Cruise -possibly on a Viking boat -, a Distillery visit  (Kilbeggan or Tullamore DEW).

The Shamrock Lodge is not a ‘big’ hotel – just 40 rooms and some apartments which will be available to us.   The apartments have two twin/double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sitting room.  They have convenient parking and a covered walkway to the hotel, and occupants will have their breakfasts in the hotel with everyone else.

The hotel asks that participants book with them at least 8 weeks before the event  - i.e. March 14th. This in important as it is a longer lead in than usual, but understandable given that rooms may be in short supply.  The hotel will only allow a maximum of 20 single rooms at the €105.00 nightly rate.  The normal single DBB rate is €120.00 per night.
