A KISKEAM builder and a Millstreet butcher are planning to make a return trip to Haiti in April to help with the relief effort in the earthquake-stricken country.
John F O’Connor from Kiskeam and Jerry O’Leary from Millstreet were in Haiti last October when they took part in the Haven house building project. Both Duhallow men have also been to South Africa on a number of occasions with the Niall Mellon Trust.
The two men, who would have met many times on the playing field, were greatly taken aback when the horror of the earthquake unfolded. They now want to return to Haiti in April to help by providing much needed housing.
They are now working to raise funds for their relief effort and to kick start the fund-raising they will be holding a number of events in the next two months and would greatly appreciate any help from the community.

It is being run on a non-profit basis, and all the speakers and organisers are volunteering their time for the event.
There is concern for the jobs in the chocolate crumb producing plant in Rathmore, as the implications of Kraft’s $13 billion takeover of Cadburys come into focus.
