Huge congratulations to Clifden students Sr. Barbara Molloy and Maura Cronin who were finalists in this year’s Silver Surfer Awards which were held at the Helix in Dublin in May. The ladies did not win their categories but enjoyed a wonderful day when they were treated like celebrities. Barbara and Maura were interviewed by Newstalk and paid tribute to their wonderful GRETB tutor, Ann Marie Nee who provides training at St Joseph’s Court one morning a week in computers and mobile phones.
Barbara had been afraid to embrace computers but thanks to the classes that she received through the GRETB she is now in constant online contact with the friends that she left behind in Egypt when she retired. Maura is a computer whizz and does a lot of her shopping and banking online.
The computer classes are very popular with St Joseph’s Court residents and make a huge difference to the quality of their lives.
