Dalaradia/RATH Community group presents a private screening of Hocus Pocus 1
The group is offering FREE entry to our private screen at Movie House Cinemas, Glengormley.
Saturday 28th October at 10:00am.
All we ask is you:
Make your own way there
Bring your own food and sweets
The movie house shop will be open too
Best dressed prizes (not everyone needs to dress up – don’t worry)
All children must be accompanied by an adult and you must be a Rathcoole resident.
There is a limited number of seats available. Tickets will be available via a booking system from 7pm tomorrow evening to give everyone notice – they will go fast.
Yesterday our group attended the Jude Morrow Neurodiversity event for staff and Volunteers seminar.
Jude is Autistic and one of his main aims is to challenge the narrative of how systems and people push people with ASD into a disorderly pigeon hole, among others.
He said the growing epidemic on mental health issues among people on the spectrum is due to harder to reach goals compared to what is expected of someone not on the spectrum. He talked about challenging the government and education systems for not matching children’s needs.
An extremely informative event and one our group will no doubt benefit from when we consider our engagement with various people, both adults and children.
Yesterday evening we took a group of young people from Rathcoole, (the Coole kids), we have been engaging with to Spruce Meadows.
They enjoyed some quad biking, paint balling and some other activities then got a bite to eat. Free days out like these offer the kids an alternative to normal day to day things and a break from the norm and we really hope they enjoyed it. Next up – the teenagers
Happy Ulster day folks.
Ulster’s Solemn League and Covenant, commonly known as the Ulster Covenant, was signed on and before 28 September 1912. The signatories, 471,414 in all were in protest against the Third Home Rule Bill introduced by the British Government in the same year. Sir Edward Carson was the first person to sign the Covenant during a carefully choreographed ceremony at Belfast’s City Hall. Carson marched in military procession toward the hall, behind a flag said to have been carried by King William III’s troops at the Battle of the Boyne.
In the grand entrance he leaned over a circular table, tightly draped in the Union Flag and signed with a silver pen, followed by Lord Londonderry (the former viceroy of Ireland), representatives of the Protestant churches, then by Sir James Craig before the throngs waiting outside were ushered in, 500 at a time, until the doors were closed near midnight.
Women added their names to a separate declaration pledging to associate themselves with the men of Ulster. We, their descendants, just as they were, are duty bound to defend our country and its people from any perceived threat to our way of life.
We know the war prepared
On ever peaceful home
We know the hells prepared
For such as serve not Rome
The terror, threats, and bread
In market, hearth, and field –
We know, when all is said,
We perish if we yield.
This evening members of Dalaradia/RATH made a donation to Joanne at the Baby Bank – Glengormley and Newtownabbey
The baby bank is a great service who help various residents within the estate. Recognising that anyone can face uncertain or difficult short term financial stress, we want to help parents work towards preventing further financial pressure
Many thanks to those who donated.
