We were delighted to record three wonderful Birthday Celebrations at Millstreet Day Care Centre today. Coordinator Mary Feeley introduced us to Julia Murphy who is celebrating her 104th Birthday and who sang for us all a beautiful rendition of “My Donegal Shore” without even having to use glasses when referring to the words of the song! Joining Julia was Kathleen Moynihan and Peg Tarrant. A very Happy Birthday to all three splendid ladies. Adding to the occasion there was a superb musical presentation by pupils from Presentation N.S., Millstreet. A cheque of €500.00 was also presented to the Centre by the Pupils and Teacher Nora Murphy as the result of a recent Bake Cake Sale at the School. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)

How you can help Millstreet Day-Care Centre.
If yourself or members of your family are spring cleaning please remember our Thrift Shop. We accept bric-a-brac, children’s clothes, buggies, toys, and curtains etc., any clothes that are in good condition. All proceeds from the shop go towards the Day-Care Centre.
We also accept clothes not fit for resale e.g. old curtains and blankets, quilt covers, towels etc. We sell them for recycling to the National Council for the Blind. Not alone does this create an income for the Council for the Blind but we put the money we get from them into our Social Fund – which helps pay for tutors and volunteers (music, exercise classes, red cross etc).
Old clothes can be handed into the Thrift Shop or the Millstreet Day Care Centre.
Any donations or unwanted china especially (cups and saucers) would be greatly appreciated.
We try to provide as much entertainment as possible during the day – birthday parties, sing-along, exercises, games etc., but funding is always a problem.
Thank you all for your continuing support and please encourage your neighbours or friends to come and join us.
We thank Mary Feeley for this superb insight into support for the Centre. We now share a selection of images recorded at the recent reopening of Millstreet Day Care Centre following most impressive renovations.
