The purpose of this project is to fund the refurbishment of the 48 bedrooms In the Parents Accommodation Unit (PAU,) in Our Ladies Children’s Hospital, Crumlin. 

This unit relies on charitable donations and until the intervention of Rotary the refurbishment work could not have been undertaken place.

Clubs sponsored rooms and helped at volunteer days to refurbish the rooms.

The work has now been completed and the project was officially opened by DG Gerry on 24th June assisted by PDG Declan Tyner.

Rotarian Daniel O Reilly (Monaghan) is to be commended for initiating this worthwhile project and all the Clubs who made contributions can be justifiably proud.


The Young Driver Awareness Programme – Just 1 Life continues to attract interest from clubs throughout the country.  Naas & Newbridge Rotary Clubs have joined together to launch the programme in Kildare.  

Wexford Rotary Club is available to advise and assist any club who wishes to participate in this programme 


As we get closer to Christmas many clubs will embarked on their annual Tree of Remembrance campaign. 

The clubs involved deserve particular praise for a number of reasons:

  • It gives people a way to remember loved ones who they miss at Christmas in a very practical way.  
  • It contributes to local charities.  
  • Last but not least it raises the profile of Rotary in the local community.
