    Hear from Irene originally hails from Limerick who’s world fell apart following the sudden death of her beloved husband.  Irene’s world became so small she didn’t open the curtains or venture further than the local shops for 9 years.  Confidence & her desire to live her life and get out had completely diminished.

    Irene recently said on Cara:

    “What a difference, I’m slowly opening up and doing things and surprising myself”.  On her Cara volunteer Mary “You’d think she’s my sister, we are so close!”.

I’m very genuinely sincerely humbled and honoured to be part of the Leeds Irish Health & Homes in any way possible. Having no family of my own now in Leeds (originally from) Leeds. On my return back l felt l was adopted and as a family member. Its very special feeling to me!

Under two year’s l had never sung in my life period. Joined the local church choir for their Carol’s service. Then was asked to join the church choir – me?…. During this l was asked to try for the “Leeds Philharmonic Chorus” – Woooow still can’t believe it!… l then was asked to join the “West Riding Opera Company” too. I love all types of music – “eclectic tastes!”

*Best of all is feeling a family member with everyone at Irish Health &, Home’s!..

Wishing everyone many thanks and God bless to you all…..
