In the spirit of Christmas, Aras Follain opens its doors on Christmas day

Aras Follain is a local Peer Support Centre in Tyone, Nenagh.
Last year we decided to open on Christmas Day from 8am – 8pm, we got a fantastic amount of support from our local community and are again this year asking for your support. Approx. 45 people came to spend part of their Christmas Day here in Aras Folláin where we served, Full Irish Breakfast, Full Christmas Dinner and a variety of other foods. We were also able to give 25 dinners to people to take home with them for the following day.  All of this was possible because of the gift of donations, whether it was of food, money, time or expertise.
We are open again this year on Christmas Day and hope that it will be even more successful than last year. It is with this in mind that we are looking to you for your support for this worthwhile event. Please become a friend of Aras Follain and donate whatever you can give to ensure that Christmas Day is a community day for all and can be a benefit and enhancement of our town community spirit
