Thanks for supporting for Fairtrade MS Ireland fundraisers

The Millstreet Community School Transition Year Development Education Committee have now successfully completed two fundraising events to raise money for MS Ireland.  Both events featured cakes and cookies that they themselves baked using Fairtrade ingredients such as sugar, coffee, and cocoa.

On Tuesday 28th February they hosted a coffee morning in the Parish Centre, which raised €506.  On Tuesday 28th March they held a bake sale in Millstreet Community School canteen.  They made €170 from this.  So a grand total of €676 was raised.  Thanks to everyone who supported these initiatives in any way.  The students involved in running both events are to be commended on their efforts.

Urgent accommodation request for retreat team o/n Wed. 29th March

The 1st students at Millstreet Community School have a retreat on Thursday 30th March 2017 in Millstreet Parish Centre.  The retreat will be run by NET ministries, who are based in Co. Donegal and this will be the tenth year they’ve been to Millstreet.

Thanks to those who have already volunteered to host members of the retreat team.  All seven girls (18-25 year olds) have been accommodated.

We have not managed to find acommodation for the five boys (18-25 year olds) yet.  If anyone was in a position to host them that would be great. They need to be accommodated in a pair and a group of three.

If there are families able to give them accommodation and a simple meal on the evening of Wednesday 29th March (they’ll be arriving in Millstreet at about 6.30pm), and breakfast on Thursday 30th March, that would be great.  They need to be back at the Parish Centre for between 8.00am or 8.15am on the Thursday so they can get ready for the retreat.  If you can help please contact Millstreet Community School on 029 70087  as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your help.

Eily’s Report – 28th March

Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my weekly Report.

Our weather lived up to its name in earnest this past week. The opening days brought a trinkling of snow on the fields and muct heavier in the far away hills. And the second half of the week was semi-tropical with hot sun giving us all a glow of warmth and good cheer. But the dry weather caused some forest fores in the area. On Sunday nght the night skys were lit up in flaming red as mountain sides blazed. Our Fire brigade was out to control fires which threatened forests in some places. Thankfully due to their great efforts, no serious damage was reported.

Mothers Day was celebrated like never before, with brilliant sunshine to allow outdoor parties, some on the beach and an air of wellbeing all around. Baoichas le Dia.
