Respite Break – Mulllingar

It’s that time of year again in the Training Centre, Bray. A group of ten service-users and three staff travelled to Westmeath in June.

We stayed for two nights and it was full of action! For some, it was their first break aay with us and they really enjoyed it.
Activities included rock-climbing, orienteering and archery…..some staff may need more practise in this area…..
We did a scavenger hunt and split up into three groups. We only had to find bog water, feathers, ten types of leaves, toothpaste, ten acorns, one pair of blue socks, one cup of lake water and a ‘Y’ shaped branch.
Don’t we all look amazing in the bog? Fair play to all of the lads for getting stuck in, literally. No need for trips to the beauty salon, we got our mud treatments for free!
We also went to the cinema in town too and all the guys wanted to see the statue of ‘Mr. Mullingar’ himself Joe Dolan.
A very enjoyable experience and it comes highly recommended by all the guys in the Training Centre.
