A good time had by all at a week long break for the elderly at Mosney hosted by the Lions Club.

The Lions Club brings over a thousand guests on holiday to Mosney in County Meath.

This year there are over a thousand old and lonely people from all thirty two counties staying in the camp.

Activities at the camp include films, bingo, theatre, and dance. Sixty members of the Lions Club, along with fifty volunteers, are staying at the camp to help organise activities. 

Chairman of the project Jim Corcoran explains that the week is funded by Lions Clubs all over the country with the aim for everyone to have a good time.  

Apart from the organised activities, there appears to be quite a bit of matchmaking going on too.
