Drishane Convent Postcards from 1910

After trying to find English-speaking vocations in England , the Sisters of the Infant Jesus – Nicolas Barré (EJNB) left for Ireland in 1908 . And set up Drishane Convent in 1909 in order to supply a growing need for Sisters who were fluent in English in communities in Asia , and more particularly in Malaysia. Looking to make Drishane better known in Ireland, in 1910 the sisters published postcards, in black and white, and also colorized.

The Infant Jesus Sisters have now published these 18 postcards … some which we have seen before, others we have not. As an example, the postcard below shows the castle (covered in ivy) to the left of the two trees, and the main house between the two trees.

To see the photos,  go to the IJS archive website, and you will find the photos in the embedded PDF’s (which you will have to scroll down through)

Millstreet Christmas Lights 2020

🎅  Usually this time of year, the Millstreet Christmas Lights committee would be preparing for their Annual Church Gate collection and getting their sponsorship letters ready to send to all the local businesses. However, this year is a lot different! There is no collection, and it doesn’t feel right to ask the businesses that have (and still are) facing uncertain times for donations.

🎄  We hope by setting up this , it’ll allow all locals, near and far, to donate a small amount as easily as possible. Please click on the following link to support us. gf.me/u/y5iv59

Our Credit Union account is also available for those who wish to donate directly:
CU Account No.: 55654/24
