On Sunday June 9th 2019, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council presents the first dlr Age Well Expo in association with the dlr Age Friendly Alliance. Entry to the event is free of charge and will feature appearances from legendary rally driver Rosemary Smith and author, poet, and TV presenter Christy Kenneally.
The event will take place in The Pavilion at Leopardstown Racecourse to celebrate and showcase services and products available to older people in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
This is a very comprehensive EXPO aimed at older people. A wide range of assistance and services will have stands at the event. It is not just older people who should attend but also people who may have elderly relatives or have responsibility for assisting elderly people. A good example is someone who has been asked to be an executor for a will or estate for an elderly relative, friend or neighbour.
The dlr Age Well Expo will also provide an opportunity to connect, engage and hear about topics of interest, particularly around the subjects of participation, health and security which were identified in the comprehensive Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Age Friendly Strategy 2016-2020.
Up to 1,000 delegates are expected to attend the event which will run from 11.30am to 5pm and consists of a large and diverse exhibition space, seminars and presentations along with a networking and café area.
