The Drishane Castle Garden Fete was a traditional bi annual established by the Sisters of the Infant Jesus during their time in Drishane Convent 1909 – 1992. It was staged as a fund raiser for the Missions.
It was always an event held close to people’s hearts, attracting crowds of supporters from near and far. Sadly the tradition died when the Sisters’ time in Drishane came to an end, the last one was staged in May 1990 exactly 20 years ago.
2010 sees the revival of the Garden Fete on Sunday May 30th 1pm – 6pm. It promises to be a day of great festivity and celebration. It co incidentally corresponds with the Polish Celebration of “Children’s Day” further ensuring that it will be a fun filled day for all members of the family. The Committee is delighted to offer an afternoon of quality entertainment for all members of the family while also helping Baby Jacob in his lifetime challenge of blindness.

The Fine Gael Cork North West Constituency AGM takes place in Millstreet this evening. Fine Gael Education Spokesman, Brian Hayes TD will deliver a speech on why there needs to be a new deal between teachers and the Government.
If I had a fiver for everyone who told me that the Department of Education HQ was a downtown office of the Irish teachers’ unions, I would be a very wealthy man. The common perception is that the unions simply click their fingers in Marlborough Street and get everything they want.
It is true that we have seen some dreadful deals down the years where educational outcomes were not the priority. But can it be said after the effective reduction of between 15% to 19% of teachers take home pay over a twelve month period that the teacher unions still dominate the agenda? Any objective observer would have to say that this is not the case.
