Kilrock House Bingo Night

The HSE Home at Kilrock House hosted a great Bingo evening in the past week where prizes were keenly contested by mixed teams of residents and transition year students (TYS).  The TYS students, representing five secondary schools which cater for the Howth/ Sutton area, are participants in the Howth Parish TYS Programme.  The evening was greatly enhanced with some classic numbers performed by The Howth Gospel Choir led by Celine Daly.

A beautiful supper for all was provided by Jan Franklyn and staff colleagues at Kilrock House.

Both TYS students and Choir members were most interested in the origins of the distinctive Kilrock House which was built in 1875 for the then Lord Justice, Gerald Fitzgibbon.  We thank the residents and staff of Kilrock House for the warm welcome into their home.     Howth Parish Youth Group
