The 1916 Rising A century later, the 1916 Rising remains a source of deep controversy and continues to generate heated political and historical debate. Set against the backdrop of the First World War, the Rising proved to be a seminal event in Irish history, one of the key factors in the wider issue of Home Rule and helped transform public opinion throughout Ireland. As part of his Ireland's Decade of Centenaries 1912-22 series Hugh McShane will be presenting a series of 3 illustrated talks on The 1916 Rising. Wednesday 10th Feb. 11am to 12 noon in Rm.203 for 3 weeks.
Strategies For Successful Ageing Starting Friday 12th Feb. at 10am in Rm.203 we will be following a 5 week online course presented by Trinity College , Dublin, on the subject of successful ageing. All welcome.
What is Newry U3A's Active Ageing Centre?
It's a place of learning - learn how to use computers and iPads, learn a language, learn new craft skills and much more...
It's a place of challenge - develop your self-confidence, take part in performance, there's singing dancing and keep fit.
It's a place to socialise - every class/activity has it's own social interaction, plus there's theatre outings and other trips away.
As we get older we need to keep our brains active, our body fit and make lots of new friends - this is what we do.
