But did you know that the older Irish community in Britain face all the challenges older people face as well as the discrimination their peers face from Black and Minority (BME) groups?

Until two years ago, I had never sung in my life. I joined the local church choir for their carol service. I was then was asked to join the church choir – me?…. During this time l was asked to try for the “Leeds Philharmonic Chorus” – Woooow, I still can’t believe it!… l was then asked to join the “West Riding Opera Company” too. I love all types of music . I have “eclectic tastes!”
The best of all is feeling like a family member with everyone at Irish Health & Homes!..
Wishing everyone many thanks and God bless to you all…..
