It’s another busy autumn and we have lots of news to share with you. There’s so much happening in communities around the country so whether your interest lies in culture or sport, there’s something for everyone.
What’s on in Kilkenny
Next Thursday, 20th September, our talented Kilkenny artist Rob Norwood will showcase his work in a very special exhibition in Butler House on Patrick Street in Kilkenny. Rob, 34, is a resident in our Waterford neuro-rehabilitation service and he acquired a brain injury after he was knocked down by a car at just 8 years old. An inspiration to all who meet him, Rob hopes his paintings will help bring positive awareness and understanding of brain injuries.
What’s on in Louth

The concert starts at 8pm in St. Peter’s Church in West Drogheda. Tickets are €20.
