This month’s episode of Community Connection will be broadcast on Tuesday 31 August at 1pm.


Featured in this month’s episode:


At Saint Joseph’s Shankill, their vision is to lead the way in dementia care in Ireland through innovation, education and community engagement. Developing best practices that others can replicate to ensure that people living with dementia enjoy the quality of life they deserve.

Joining us to tell us more about Saint Joseph’s Shankill is Director of Nursing, Patricia McCoy.


The Nutgrove & Loreto Men’s Shed came about when a group of local retired men had visited the Shed in Sandyford and decided they could and would do the same in Loreto.

To discuss the Nutgrove & Loreto Men’s Shed is organiser, John Carhill.


Shankill Action for a Green Earth (SAGE) was formed in November 2015 as a climate change initiative which seeks to raise awareness of the threats posed by climate change to try to lower the carbon footprint within the area.

Patrick and Kathy Davey join us to discuss the highs and lows of fighting climate change.


Team Hope’s Christmas Shoebox Appeal is an annual campaign that delivers gifts straight into the hands of children affected by poverty. Often these shoebox gifts are the only gift that a child will receive at Christmas and the joy that they bring is incredible.

Jonathan Douglas, Christmas Shoebox Appeal Manager with Team Hope joins us to discuss the launch of this year’s appeal.
