It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Derek Farrell RIP. Derek was the CEO of the DDAI for 17 years and was a member the board of directors until his retirement in 2019. Derek's involvement with the DDAI spanned 31 years and he has left an indelible stamp on the organisation. He will be sadly missed. https://rip.ie/death-no…/derek-farrell-caragh-kildare/415608


Following the Irish Government’s announcement to close all schools, colleges and childcare facilities and to limit social contact where possible, we have come to the difficult decision to postpone the 50th DDAI AGM which was due to take place on Saturday 25th April.  This decision was not taken lightly, but in the interest of everyone’s health, we felt we had no option.

The new date for the 50th DDAI AGM is Saturday 26th September 2020. Further details to follow.
