Civic Centre Hosts Service Providers’ Expo

Play

Noel McGuinness reports live from the 2012 service providers exhibition in the Civic Centre on Bunratty Drive.
In attendance are representatives from the credit union organisation who will be giving workshops on money management, demonstrating ways to help people save for homes and holidays in a relatively pain-free way.

Noel also talks to a representative from the Rasp rehab clinic. It seems that the recession caused a great deal of economic pain for ordinary people, and there is no greater driver of addiction than emotional pain. As a consequence, a downturn in the economy created many more addicts of a wide variety of substances, from alcohol and heroin, to prescription drugs and glue.

It’s not all gloom though, as there is also a variety of entertainments, free foods, and fun for the children to be had.
