Taking time out from parenting, housekeeping and the ordinary and everyday round of daily tasks is to be recommended. That is exactly what twenty parents from Cranmore did on Saturday the 29th of May. A bus left Abbeyquarter Community Centre and set out for Mullaghmore. The day began with a coffee break followed by two rounds of group work. Topics moved along quickly from self-care to better ways of relating to spirituality, to relaxation exercises. This was a group of high energy and a heightened sense of humour so whether the discussion was about expressing feelings or how to do a head massage there was plenty of fun and laughter. At 1.30pm a lunch provided by The Sisters of Mercy was enjoyed by all. The afternoon was free for activities of one’s choice – a walk on the beach, use of hotel leisure facilities (courtesy of Cranmore Resource House) or indoor entertainment provided by the group. As it was a perfect summer day most opted for a drink in the sun on the seafront surrounded by the beautiful scenery of Sligo. Whatever the activity the interaction, companionship and camaraderie within the group will live on. The day was facilitated by Sis. Rita McGarty. Rita would like to thank the organising committee and all those who helped in any way.
