Mayoral Reception for Veterans of IUNVA and ONE

On Monday 12th June, the Mayor of Limerick City and County Council, Mr Francis Foley, hosted a Mayoral reception to honour members of IUNVA Post 6 and ONE, Patrick Sarsfield Branch to mark their service at home and abroad.

Photo shows Mayor Foley presenting a scroll to Post 6 Chairman Joe Curtin to mark the occasion.

Post 6 to set up Care/Assistance group

Post 6 are aware that some IUNVA members and Defence Vets are struggling to attend Hospital appointments, outside their nearest Hospital.

This difficulty in getting to appointments or getting medicines delivered, can be very upsetting.
Depending on the numbers, we would hope to extend the service to include visits to housebound Vets as we go forward.
With this in mind, we are asking the wider Vet Community to consider, volunteering their services.
We would compile a list of volunteers and rotate this each time we call on you to assist.
We understand that you might not be available when required, but the person that is available, would be moved to the bottom each time.
If you can help us, please ring Ken OBrien on 083 4284453. This is the Post 6 phone number.
