Nursing Home News

We would like to welcome the few new residents to Harbour Lights, we understand that with the covid19 guidelines for isolation your transition is a little more difficult but we hope you will settle in soon.We wish to pass on our condolences to the family’s of our residents who have sadlypassed away recently, we send our deepest sympathies may they rest in peace.

Fun during Lockdown

Even though the current times have been difficult and we have missed seeing everyone visit us in Harbour Lights,the residents have spent their time participating in arts and crafts, indoor games and socially distanced calls/visits.

Music and Dancing

Along with the activities indoors we have been very lucky to have some musicians join us during the fine weather, to play some music for us from the front courtyard.We wish to thank Rosaleen, Kathy and Maeve the residents all enjoyed the music and great atmosphere.

Surprise Surprise

On Thursday the 25th of June we recieved a surprise phone call to say that Daniel O'Donnell would be performing an outdoor concert for the residents of Harbour Lights that evening at the request of our D.O.N. Lorraine.

The residents were delighted and excited to hear this news. We decorated and waited hard for Daniels arrival and he did not disappoint, he chatted and sang his heart out all from a safe distance outdoors. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Daniel for his special effort to come visit us at Harbour Lights.


Due to Covid 19 we cannot have mass said in the home but we have mass streamed daily at 11am on the television in the dayrooms for any residents who wish to attend.
