Award Winning Cafe

December 10, 2015


Local woman Sheila Smyth, founder of the Recoverycafé, and Chief Executive of The Right Key in Dromore, is celebrating after winning a special award at the All Ireland Pride of Place award.

The Right Key was established in 2012, and uses music for health, healing and recovery. 

Last year they established The Recovery Café in Dromore, which gathers people from Dromore, Lisburn, Banbridge, Armagh and Newry, who are in a recovery process. 

They were nominated by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Council for the award. 

Competition was high, but the judges, who spent a day at The Recovery Café, were greatly impressed with the work there, and by the performance that they heard from the Voice of Recovery singers, who are in a recovery process from alcohol addiction.

“The judges spent a day at our building, and it really was a lovely afternoon,” explained Sheila. “A written and vocal presentation were given, followed by a moving performance by those who had previously suffered from addiction, but who are now sober and clean from drugs. 

“A performance of songs and poetry was presented, that demonstrated the struggle they had come through, but also the extent of their recovery. 

“It was deeply moving, and the judges gave the group a standing ovation.
