Rossinver Active Age Group

The Thursday Club meet every Thursday in the New Ballagh Centre. The Thursday Club caters for people over fifty five years of age who want to be involved in a social group.

The group supported by the RISE Project organise a range of activities including curling, arts and crafts, Tai Chi, Yoga, creative writing and Bingo. Presentations are given on a range of topics which are of interest to those over 55 including advisory talks on mental health, fire safety and crime prevention.

Musical mornings and dancing are hosted by local musicians and dance instructors which are always lively and fun. There is a Christmas meal and an annual summer outing. The club takes a break for August. Each member of the Thursday Club contributes €3 per week towards the costs of running the club. With the support of the RISE Project Co-ordinator we seek funding from the HSE and "Go For Life" to support us in providing a full and varied programme of activities.
