In this strange new time with restrictions on contact between households and where public health advice is to remain at home as much as possible, many people are experienced high levels of social isolation. It is important to stay positive and healthy in the face of this new social isolation. We at Sligo LEADER Partnership want to reach out to our clients and those vulnerable in our community to help them connect with the greater Sligo community and enjoy some light hearted entertainment. 

How many people remember the late Derek Davis and Thelma Mansfield grace our screens on RTE’s ‘Live at three’? Well, Sligo LEADER have teamed up with Liam Horan and the Horan Stand to present a weekly programme hosted on Zoom to connect with the elderly in our community. The show will consist of a weekly chat, music and some interviews with well-known local personalities. 

Sligo LEADER is one of the members of the ‘Sligo Community Response Forum’ and one of the activations from the forum is connecting with the community. ‘This is a great opportunity to connect with the elderly in our community and this is what Sligo LEADER is all about’ said Sligo LEADER Chairperson, Fintan Kennedy. ‘We all have a responsibility to help connect with the most vulnerable in our society and we’re asking everyone in Sligo to help connect their loved ones to this weekly programme,’ said Sligo LEADER CEO, John Feerick.

This service is free of charge and you can book a space by emailing Sligo LEADER are also looking for musicians, singers and anyone who would be interested in contributing on a weekly basis. Local schools could also provide some stories, letters or poems and this would be very welcome. For further details email or call (071)9141138.
