Millstreet Museum & Tourist Information Centre Church Gate Collection This Weekend

Millstreet Museum & Tourist Information Centre Church Gate Collection takes place this weekend – 13th & 14th August 2011outside St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet.   This is our main source of funding for the year.    It is earnestly hoped that we shall be back at our Carnegie Hall location very shortly.   Most of our Archives have now been moved to the new purpose built Museum Archive Centre at Mount Leader.   We deeply appreciate the fact that the vast volume of our historic material was very kindly housed on a temporary basis and without cost by the Duggan Family of Green Glens for almost the past three years.     Support for our Collection this weekend would be greatly appreciated so as to assist us in the re-establishment of our Museum at Carnegie Hall and for the provision of a significant Tourist Information Centre.    Sincere thanks.  (S.R.)
