When Lord’s Taverners Ireland proudly presented its first minibus in 2006, we never imagined that
our fleet would continue to grow as much as it has.

Thanks to successful fundraising events over the years and the generosity of you, our members and
friends, four more minibuses have been presented since our last Taverners Tales edition.

You will have read about the Dublin Swifts/Killester Tigers minibus in our RevUp feature in this
newsletter. St John of Gods and Stewarts School were presented with their vehicles at the 2022
Christmas lunch and during the Summer of 2023 Bluestack Foundation in Donegal became the proud
owners of our most recent one.

“Our new minibus has enabled us to participate lots of offsite sporting events and outings. Thank you
Lord’s Taverners Ireland for making such a positive contribution to the lives of the young people
attending Blusstack Foundation.”

John McCarry, Bluestack Foundation

The Bus is used weekly take Bluestack Foundation’s young adults with additional needs to leisure centres around the County of Donegal where they get to enjoy the swimming and gym facilities. 

“Nelson Mandela said ‘The true character of a society is revealed in how it treats it’s children’.  On
behalf of the Services Users, Staff, family and friends of all our Service Users in Saint John of God
Dublin South East, I would like to thank the Lord’s Taverners Ireland for enabling us purchase this
Minibus.  You have truly made a difference.”

Des North, Regional Director, Saint John of God Dublin South East

“We have had opportunity to use the bus visiting our local amenities the local shop, swimming pool,
sports centre and Liffey Valley. This year, it was great to have the bus for our summer trips out also.
We went to the Zoo, Clonfert farm, Playzone and McDonalds. It was wonderful for us to be able to
travel independently to and from these places. Some of the students were able to use the bus to
assist with transitions to Adult Programmes in the community and that was a great support to us.
Thank you Lord’s Taverners Ireland.”

Mary Carrig, Principal of Stewarts School
