Nurses were delighted to receive the knitted items for the neo natal unit of RVH today especially as they had just run out of bootees.
They expressly asked me to pass on how much this work was appreciated by staff and parents.
DRA handed over 139 jackets, 83 hats, 32 sets bootees, 12angel blankets. Some of the items handed over had been displayed at our Drumbeg Residents’ Association Annual Village Show held on the first weekend of September 2017.


The Association was originally set up as the Drumbeg Rate-payers’ Association in the early 1960s, and adopted its present name in the 1990s.

The objectives of the Association are to nurture the interests and aspirations of the local community by a common effort. To improve and maintain the conditions of life in the Drumbeg area. To advance educational opportunity and provide facilities to promote social welfare, recreation and other leisure activities.
