Mickey Doherty had everyone up on the floor for a boogie.

Yesterday DEEDS hosted 77 members living with dementia and their families for a St Patrick’s Celebration with amazing entertainment from the wonderful Mickey Doherty. The event kicked off with our marvelous Mellow DEEDS Choir led by Anna Nolan accompanied by James Anderson on the guitar. Everyone joined in for their rendition of “The Wild Rover!”

Mickey asked Mellow DEEDS member Willy Barrett to entertain us with a couple of songs. His rendition of Town I Loved So Well had us all moved. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
