What If I Never

What if i never see Millstreet Town or Claraghatlea again
Or walk in the old fields in the winds of rain
When the hawthorns are cloaked in their blooms of white to gray
And the nesting birds are singing in the prime of the May

It was my love of adventure that brought me far south
Of the fields of the badger and the waterways of the brown trout
To the coastal countryside of emu, koala and gray kangaroo
And white long billed corella and dark brown yellow tailed black cockatoo

Thanks for supporting for Fairtrade MS Ireland fundraisers

The Millstreet Community School Transition Year Development Education Committee have now successfully completed two fundraising events to raise money for MS Ireland.  Both events featured cakes and cookies that they themselves baked using Fairtrade ingredients such as sugar, coffee, and cocoa.

On Tuesday 28th February they hosted a coffee morning in the Parish Centre, which raised €506.  On Tuesday 28th March they held a bake sale in Millstreet Community School canteen.  They made €170 from this.  So a grand total of €676 was raised.  Thanks to everyone who supported these initiatives in any way.  The students involved in running both events are to be commended on their efforts.
