Congratulations to all who took part in the Marathon

We in the clinic would like to take this time to thanks everybody who took part in the Dublin City Marathon 2012. We had 120 people to take part in this event, it has been the biggest number yet to run in the Marathon for the Clare Crusaders. It means so much to all 200 children who comes to the clinic each week for therapy. A big thank you to all the people who were out supporting our runners/walkers, its you guys that help them get through it. Also thanks to everybody who sponsored some of the runners we know its not each to raise money but every little bit helps.

Halliwick Swimming Groups

Every Thursday evening the Therapist along with some parents bring children swimming to the Auburn Lodge in Ennis. The children really enjoy this swimming as its a break from work.  The therapist use the Halliwick swimming method which means that no floating devices are used in the water. The Halliwick concept was developed to teach people to swim and become independent in water with an emphasis on happiness and safety
