Here are some of the activities provided in Sonas:
Arts & Crafts
We have a weekly art group.
Wednesday night is Film Club
A pizza and a good film -a midweek treat.
Takes place on Fridays and is very popular as is our baking group.
In the summer we like to have a gardening project – this year we are working with Galway City Partnership to build window boxes and plant some blooming nice flowers!
Mervue Lunch Club
We meet every Thursday in St. James GAA hall for good food, chat and a music session. Sonas centre is too small for this group as about 25 people attend. We have lunch at 1 followed by a live music session which is provided by our volunteer musicians. This lunch club started in 2011 and has gone from strength to strength. It’s attended by local residents from Mervue, ARA members and Sonas. All are welcome!
Trips & Outings:
We have a couple of outings a year- these are fun and a great way to get together! Over the past few years we have been to:
- Museum of Country Life in Castlebar
- Birds of Prey and Ailewee caves
- The Yeats & Lady Gregory trail
