"My name is Michael Nolan. I am 91 years young." "I lived four miles from the famous Abbey in Holycross and was a regular visitor there. On one such visit I got a form from the Abbey Gift Shop and sent it off to Ballyroan. My wife had died two years previously and I was feeling very lonely and in need of some care." "Charlie McDonald came to meet me and agreed to let me come and live here. I had lived in Santa Barbara, California for over twenty years, working in hotels. I enjoy my garden, chatting with the other residents, playing a round of Crazy Golf and looking forward to outings during the Summer and to our house parties two or three times a year." "Sue Ryder House is a lovely place to live, food and staff wonderful, excellent is the word."
