Ria Buckley and Hannah Keane are 5th year students at Millstreet Community School. They will be going on pilgrimage to Lourdes for a week during their Easter holidays 2020 with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust. They are following in a long line of other students who have gone to Lourdes as helpers and had a wonderfully fulfilling time.
The cost of their flight/accommodation is €670/person and the students are currently fundraising in an effort to cover these costs. A successful bake sale took place in the parish centre before Christmas.
A table quiz held in The Wallis Arms on Friday 31st January – €40/table of four. Everyone is welcome to take part on what should be a very enjoyable evening.

As we draw near to the end of our first term in school we would like to thank the parents and pupils of Kilcorney N.S. for their wonderful generosity and kindness shown to various charities. The school sent off over 40 shoeboxes in November. We also collected an enormous amount of hats, gloves, toiletries, etc. for the Simon Community and a total of €208 was collected following our Christmas Nativity (pictures below) for the St. Vincent de Paul Society. We wish you all a peaceful Christmas.

Two 5th year students from Millstreet Community School, Hannah Keane and Ria Buckley, will be travelling to Lourdes as helpers with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust at Easter 2020. They are following in a long line of students who have done the same over recent years.

The first event will be a bake sale which is to be held on Saturday 14th December in Millstreet Parish Centre after the 6.30pm Mass. Everyone is welcome to come along and support them in their efforts. Thank you

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.
Donagh, Darragh, and Harry, are currently helping to raise awareness of testicular cancer by asking men to complete their short cancer awareness survey. This is a part of the research for their BT Young Scientist project which they hope to be presenting in Dublin next January. A brave project to take on, but one that could actually save lives. It’s simple, anonymous, and will only take a few minutes, so please help them out by completing their survey.
Attention ALL Farmers: Please take 1 minute out of your day to complete a short anonymous survey for our BT Young Scientist Project.

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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>, and we will forward the answers.
