Age Without Limits Action Day

Coffee, Conversation and Quiz

To mark Age Without Limits Action Day on Wednesday 20 March 2024, a special event was organised in Omagh Library.

Presented in collaboration with Fermanagh and Omagh District Council (FODC), South West Age Partnership and Libraries NI, the event proved to be both stimulating and engaging.

Over 50 participants enjoyed a quiz including a round of questions on ageism, followed by coffee and conversation. The event not only fostered mental agility through the quiz but also encouraged social interaction and gave people an opportunity to discuss what it is like to be an older person in the Fermanagh and Omagh district area.

Age Without Limits Action Day is the first national event of its kind, it is a major new anti-ageism campaign from the Centre for Ageing Better. The campaign called for everyone to change the way they think about ageing. The Action Day was a chance for individuals and communities, workplaces, friends and families to learn, take action and make a difference.

The event was a great success and the atmosphere was one of fun and shared learning. As the quiz progressed, it became evident that age truly know no bounds when it comes to intellectual curiosity and engagement. #SeeAndBeSeen
