Tour De Munster Meeting at DSL Office

April 9 at 7.30pm in DSL offices – a meeting for Tour De Munster upcoming events 2019.

Due to previous lack of turn out we wish to provide another opportunity for our members to benefit from the proceeds

of the annual 4 day cycle – Tour De Munster.

If you can give a few hours over the year from now until circa September you could help DSL to continue to be able to subsidise SLT & OT services by supporting us to participate in the Tour De Munster 2019.

You do not have to be a cyclist to help.  Each year we host the cyclists on their way around Munster with a lunch (usually in early August) and the use of the hotel showers/pool.  We also attend the dinner at the end of the cycle in Killaloe and of course the cheque presentation.  There are also one or two fundraising events such as jersey sponsorship launch that a representative of DSL attends.  Promoting the cycle and maximising our fundraising efforts here in Limerick is the main role.  DSL is a parent run organisation with a small committee that need help to run an event such as this.  Provision of services is dependent on monies raised or donated.  If you can help please join us on April 9.

Speech and Language Tips

It can be fun to reflect back on enjoyable times during the summer break. Use photographs of a day out, holiday or family event to recall these times and encourage commenting. These could be brought in to school or work to share as news.

Chairperson Message

Hello, my name is Paudie Murray and I am husband to Aoife and father to Rachael, Ciara and Hannah. Hannah who has Down syndrome is approaching her fourth birthday and is currently attending pre-school. Hannah is a unique individual with her own personality, family background and preferences that make her who she is. She is our child, our daughter, our sister but ultimately she is herself. Previous to Hannah’s birth we had little knowledge of the difficulties for people with Down Syndrome and their families. However, neither did we realise how rewarding it would be to parent a child with Down Syndrome. Hannah brings more joy and happiness to our family than anyone could ever imagine and we have learned so much already from her.

At Down Syndrome Limerick we are dedicated to being a primary source of information and support to people with Down syndrome and their families working towards an improved quality of life for our members and a respect for and acceptance of people with Down syndrome as valued members of our society. We place the person with Down syndrome at the centre of our organization and we value the uniqueness and diverse needs of our members and their families which govern all our activities.
