Recently, the GOC DFTC, Brigadier General Brendan Mc Guinness presented a number of donations from the proceeds of the DFTC Gala Concert, which was held in St Brigid’s Garrison Church, Curragh Camp on the 20th December last.
The donations were made to the Irish United Nations Veterans Association (IUNVA), the Curragh Family Resource Centre (FRC), The Curragh Military Museum and the Organisation of National Ex-Service Personnel (ONE).
Pictured with Brigadier General Brendan Mc Guinness, Comdt Alan Courtney and members from IUNVA Post 11, ONE’s St Michaels Branch (Athy) and St Conleths Branch (Newbridge), Colonel Micheal Dawson Ret’d and Angela Morrisey Kenny both from Curragh FRC and members of the DFTC Gala Concert Committee.
ONE would like to thank the GOC, Comdt Alan Courtney and the members of the DFTC Gala Concert Committee for their very generous donation.
ONE is a registered charity for veterans of the Irish Defence Forces. ONE was established on 10 March 1951 and its primary objective is to support the needs of Irish veterans by the provision of accommodation to homeless veterans in its Veterans’ Homes and the provision of other advice and support to veterans through its nationwide network of 38 Branches and 15 Veterans’ Support Centres. ONE’s services are available to all veterans of the Defence Forces and we also facilitate homeless veterans from other countries living in Ireland from time to time.
