FRIENDS OF CUAN MHUIRE: The first weekly meetings of Friends of Cuan Mhuire will take place at 7.30pm on Friday 5th August at the Sue Ryder Centre, Kilminchy in Portlaoise. If you or someone you know is suffering with alcohol, narcotics or gambling addictions we are here to support you and to listen to you with compassion. This is an opportunity to meet and talk with people who understand your issues. If you are in recovery from addiction, struggling with addiction or need support due to someone else’s addiction we can offer a wide variety of help and support systems. Sister Consilio will give a talk at the first meeting along with her team of highly trained staff members. Everyone is welcome to come along. Light refreshments will be available on the night.
