The Marymount Hospice Fundraising Project is progressing very well. Its coordinators, Jerry O’Donoghue and Tim Cronin with their supportive team are very pleased with the generous response being received. Next month’s Draw which will take place in The Pub, Carriganima will not only have the three prizes from the ticket to be drawn but people (who have bought a ticket) will also have a further chance of winning ten extra truly valuable prizes which have been kindly sponsored and which will also be drawn on the night. All results will appear online here on the Millstreet website. (S.R.)
Jerry & Tim who are two of the most dedicated members of the Millstreet Fundraising Project for Marymount Hospice have already raised in excess of €2,000.00 for the wonderfully praiseworthy Fund and are pictured here at the recent Newmarket Show which was held in Green Glens. Their most recent very successful fundraiser took place on Friday night at the open air dancing in Mushera where many people especially from the Ballinagree area were very supportive of the Project. Tickets continue to sell well. If you wish to support the Fund we have tickets here at Millstreet Museum or you may very well see Jerry and Tim with their mobile stand at an event before the closing date on Friday, 24th Oct. when the occasion of the Draw takes place at the Pub in Carriganima. Dr. Pat Casey also has tickets for sale for the Project. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

We all know loved ones who have been taken care of by Marymount Hospice, either in the hospice or by their home care team. TV3 is running a two part documentary on Marymount, and it’s very moving to see people tell their stories, how it works from the inside, and the level of care they give.
About the documentary (from TV3.ie): The staff and patients of St. Patrick’s Marymount Hospital in Cork city are on the move. 141 years after it first opened its doors, this much loved Cork institution is moving to a new hospital which will be Ireland’s most advanced palliative care facility and a centre of excellence for the Irish hospice movement.
