St. Patrick’s day came to Palmerstown as staff, service users, friends and family gathered for the Stewarts Care St. Patrick’s Day parade and celebrations for the first time in two years, since the onset of the Pandemic. Deputy Emer Higgins, TD for Dublin Mid-West has praised Stewarts Care for a wonderful celebration that brought the community back together after two years apart.
Deputy Higgins said, “St Patrick’s Day is always a massive community celebration that brings everyone together and after the hardship of the last two years it was great to see the community enjoying being together again at the Stewarts St. Patrick’s parade. “The covid-19 restrictions have been particularly hard on the most vulnerable in our society, but Stewarts continued to support and care for their service users and it’s always an honour to see first hand the level of care they provide and the happiness they give to service users,” added Deputy Higgins.
“Stewarts really empowers and supports those with different abilities and additional needs to lead an enriched life and that mission statement was certainly on display during the St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations. “I really enjoyed meeting with service users like David, Lawrence and Una and taking in the parade while the Garda Band played on – it was brilliant to see the community back together again. “I am so grateful to Stewarts Care for the incredible service they provide in the community and I luck forward to many St. Patrick’s Day celebrations to come,” concluded Deputy Higgins.
