Would you give one hour a week to help an asylum seeker improve their English?

Many of the daily tasks that we take for granted such as shopping, visiting the doctor, helping children with homework, are extremely difficult when English is not your first language. If you are interested in helping asylum seekers improve their English, contact Mike Riordan, Drishane Castle (086) 4106364.

Today, while shopping in Millstreet an uplifting further gesture of support for our work on the Millstreet Website was received.   Following our recent church gate collection for the combined funding of both our Museum and Website it’s totally encouraging to note the response our appeal has received from loyal followers of our Website living elsewhere in Ireland and across the world in such a generous and concrete manner.  The relative of one such kind follower (who wishes to remain anonymous) donated €50.00 towards the support of our website.  Míle buíochas for this much appreciated gesture.   This contribution will be added to our overall fund as we continue to share such news as the following:

Dia is Muire díobh go léir a chairde and welcome to my weekly Report from Millstreet.eily1-150x150[1]

The down turn in the weather over the weekend did much to spoil a lot of carefully planned events. The residents of Drishane put many hours of planning into their first ever Garden Fete. It was going to be a gala outdoor presentation with fun and games and food and music and crafts of many countries on the list but alas the continuous rains forced the entire programme to be held indoors. However not to be outdone the organisers still forged ahead and put on the best show they could.

In the dining area there was a wide variety of foods representing many lands ,Pakistan, Lithuania , South Africa ,to name but a few. And the people were there to serve the food,say what it contained , and tell a little about from where it came. Further down in the function room there were displays of different crafts from pottery to bead craft and many other things in between. continue reading…
