At a recent meeting Millstreet Town Park Committee formally resolved to express their sincere gratitude and thank the following for their donations towards the proposed new Playground
- Mr Patrick W O’Leary of Louisville, Kentucky, USA for a personal donation of €500. Patrick’s great grandfather hailed from Millstreet. Patrick is very proud of his Irish heritage and is a huge supporter of all things Millstreet since he first visited our Town in 2013 and returning 5 times, most recently in September. Patrick has kindly opted to have his donation published in the hope that it will encourage other “Sráiders” at home and abroad to make a donation to the Playground project.
- Millstreet Pitch n Putt Club for a contribution of €500 in addition to their annual club subscription.
- Irina Popova and Justyna Marynowska of Infinite Arts Centre who have already raised €240 from their Saturday morning Yoga workshops. The final fundraising workshop takes place Saturday 19th October 9-11am in the Parish Centre. Places are still available so don’t be shy to be a Yogi!
- Millstreet Community Council, Millstreet GAA Club, Millstreet Juvenile GAA Club and Millstreet Camogie Club who have rallied together and kindly forfeited the most recent instalment due from the Local Lotto sales in support of the Playground Project resulting in an additional €12,000 being donated.
We are still a long way short from the money needed so we are again calling on all Sráiders to dig deep and make whatever contribution you can … every little helps.
We will continue to keep you posted on upcoming fundraising initiatives and progress on grant applications.
