As part of national repair, reuse month ShamrockSpring is hosting a conversation on repairing communities at Ryston Sports and Social Club in Newbridge this Friday October 28.

Doors open at 7.30pm with talks commencing at 8pm and music from 9.30pm onwards. 

“This invitation is to all affected by addictions or substance abuse. This is your chance to be part of the solution. Come, talk, participate. Let’s mend hearts in our neighbourhood,” said Deirdre Lane, founder of ShamrockSpring.

Speakers from ACAR and a Local Drugs Task Force Coordinator will be present.

Also performing on the night will be Bernard Fitzpatrick and Band, featuring Fran Prendergast on keyboards, Erik Tuleja on double base and Bernard on guitar and vocals. Afterwards, there will be a disco until midnight with DJ, Gordan Turner. 

Those in attendance will also get to experience the Repair Artwork Exhibition titled “Not always pretty in nature”, presented by ShamrockSpring, and eco artist, Michelle McBride.

“Join support groups and local musicians as we embark on this conversation,” added Deirdre.
