Adare Red Cross

The Adare Branch of the Irish Red Cross has been active in Adare since it was founded in 1940. In all those years, thanks to the generosity of the people of Adare, it has been able to support many community services. These include providing a monthly chiropody service for the elderly, installing monitored phone alarm systems and security locking, making hospital and nursing home visits, supplying winter fuel and meeting other needs, organising summer and winter functions for Senior Citizens, holding an annual Ecumenical Carol Service, as well as helping financially in many international disasters. Chairperson: Mrs Rose Brennan.
