Ombudsman for the Defence Forces

Christmas Card Donation to ONET

24 December 2009

Instead of sending out Christmas Cards this year, the Ombudsman for the Defence Forces instead made a donation to Ógla Náisiúnta na hÉireann Teoranta (ONET). ONET is an organisation dedicated to looking after the welfare of ex-servicemen and women of the Irish Defence Forces by providing accommodation to homeless, elderly or disabled ex-service personnel.
ONET Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Ollie O’Connor thanked the Ombudsman for the donation and noted that It would go towards the running of ONET’s homeless initiative to assist ‘less fortunate comrades’.

This is the second year that the Ombudsman for the Defence Forces had made such a donation to ONET by using the funds, which were allocated in her budget for producing and sending out Christmas Cards.
