What We Do

Senior Citizens' Holiday

The Lions Clubs Annual Holiday, primarily for the old and lonely, takes place in Trabolgan Holiday Village in June each year. Over 600 Guests, Lions and Helpers from throughout the 32 counties bookin for the week.

There is a full and varied programme throughout the week including dancing, competitions, supervised aqua aerobics, a daily walking challenge, bus tours plus shows each evening. Minibuses and buggies are on hand to transport those with walking difficulties and medical assistance, including an Order of Malta mobile unit, is on hand 24 hours a day.

One of the great attractions of the Holiday is that it allows the Guests to mingle with persons of their own age and swap stories and experiences. Feedback from the Guests highlights that this is something they cherish. They can be completely themselves in a very safe and cared for environment, where all of their needs are met from medical, to food, to entertainment and activity.

Carers' Weekends

The Lions Clubs carers Weekends are very necessary to family carers who look after family members 24/7. The effects on carers can be very stressful and many carers badly need respite from their caring rolls. Carers suffering from stress or anxiety can avail of counselling.

The weekends address many of the problems carers may encounter. Carers are made feel at ease throughout the weekends where they mingle and get to know each other in a beautiful tranquil setting in Rosses Point Co. Sligo or Ballyvaloo Co. Wexford. Throughout the weekends Carers discuss their situations in a relaxed environment and relate to each other. Many lasting friendships are made.

The Lions Club's Carers' Weekend is a unique community project that greatly enhances the role of family carers throughout the country.
