Action Group

Gateway has a new action group!

The next meeting is the 15th of April 2010 from 5.00pm - 6.30pm.

The group have decided that they would like to work on stigma and mental health and isolation in our community.

The group have decided on two goals:-

Short Term Goad: - A poster campaign on why people are afraid of people with mental ill health. The outcome of this would be to challenge stigma but also to outreach for the Gateway Project to prevent isolation.

Long Term Goal: - A public meeting – a focus is to be decided.

Come along and let us take some action!

Thank you to author Mia Gallagher for speaking at our recent booklet launch.



The Creative Writing Group produced a booklet recently and it was launched on Friday the 12th of March 2010. The special guest for the event was author Mia Gallagher. The creative writing class is taught by George Ferguson who is a City of Dublin VEC Tutor.

Thanks to Mia and George for their lovely words.

Creative writing classes take place on Fridays from 2.00pm - 4.00pm.





Mia's Book
One bright summer's morning in 2003 a young woman, Lucy, recently out of jail, sets out on a journey around Dublin, trying to make sense of her troubled life. She tells of the rise and fall, over three generations, of her family, whose businesses were clairvoyance and street-trading, and she recalls the twists and turns that led her into addiction, madness and jail. In particular, she relives her relationship with a charismatic and dangerous young gangster, Nayler, who still haunts her and to whom she addresses her story. Lucy's journey turns into a pilgrimage back to a haunted place and to the worst life of her night. But it may be a pilgrimage that saves her as she finally faces down the ghosts of her past.
