2019 Shoebox Appeal

Cullen N.S. Helping Others – Children in Need
61 boxes were filled by the pupils in Cullen N.S.
Well done to all our boys and girls making such a great effort. It was our first time participating in the Shoebox Appeal. A great way for kids to help other kids who are less fortunate and a real ‘eyeopener’ too. Helps the boys and girls realise how lucky they are themselves. Well done to all involved and remember ….
“We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone”.St. Brendan’s National School Rathcoole also collected 82 shoe boxes this year which are now on their way to make other children’s Christmas very special.

He thanked all the people who helped make this happen and would like to thank Everyone for their support and generosity.

Qualifications from Drishane Convent?

I wonder if anyone can help with the following question we received today, likely about Drishane Convent School:

“Hello, a cousin of mine studied at a residential post primary college in or near Millstreet in the early 1950’s. It might have been called Drishane Castle. What qualifications might the pupils have got in Domestic Science or kindred subjects? I would be grateful for any information to put in her obituary that will be needed any day.
Many thanks, Mary”

If you know, please leave a comment below, or send an email to <contact@millstreet.ie>, and we will forward the answers.
