We are sorry to advise that our former Executive Committee member, Breda O’Malley, passed away on Friday, the 1st of September.
Breda represented Westport ARA on the Executive Committee of the Irish Senior Citizens Parliament from 2000-2013 and in that time she served as Honorary Secretary, Treasurer, Trustee and as a Director. An outstanding example of older people advocating for themselves Breda was involved in our protests in both 2011 and 2013. In 2013 her apt poster attracted a lot of press interest and was printed in many newspapers.
She worked on behalf of older people with her local and national representatives and was active in her community.
Our thoughts are with her nieces and nephews and all her friends at this sad time.
May she rest in peace.
