Hand­bag sale


There will be a hand­bag sale in Kil­ian House Fam­ily Cen­tre on Sun­day. Do­na­tions of new and nearly new hand­bags, jew­ellery, hats, debs dresses and other sim­i­lar items are most wel­come. Also un­wanted new gifts are grate­fully ac­cepted.

Orla Woods along with Su­san Fi­nan, have been mod­el­ling some of the dresses which have been do­nated to the forth­com­ing Ch­er­nobyl Hand­bag and Jew­ellery Sale to be held in St. Kil­lian’s Cen­tre (be­hind the Holy Rosary Church) on Sun­day.

Orla has been a sup­porter of the pre­vi­ous sales and knows the won­der­ful bar­gains to be got on the day.

This year Orla is join­ing forces with the com­mit­tee and will cut the rib­bon on their 6th and best sale yet.

There will be some­thing for ev­ery­one at this year's sale. Tea/cof­fee, a cake sale, a new book stall, face­paint­ing for the chil­dren and a chance to try on the Rose’s tiara! Bring your cam­era to get a photo with the Rose!

So come on ev­ery­one and spring-clean your wardrobe and give us those items you’ve only worn

once. Items needed are your hand­bags, jew­ellery, hats, stoles, wed­ding out­fits, debs dresses,

leather jack­ets, belts and those shoes you’ve only worn once.

Pro­ceeds of the sale will go to fund a hol­i­day of a life­time for 20 chil­dren from Klintsy in

West­ern Rus­sia, an area which is still con­tam­i­nated by ra­di­a­tion, 25 years af­ter the hor­ren­dous Ch­er­nobyl disas­ter. This hol­i­day can boost the chil­dren’s im­mune sys­tem and ex­tend their life by two years. €10,000 is needed to cover the cost of the chil­dren and their two in­ter­preters trav­el­ling ex­penses. They will spend one month liv­ing with host fam­i­lies who gen­er­ously open their homes and hearts to these chil­dren with­out any fi­nan­cial sup­port.

Do­na­tions for the sale are grate­fully ac­cepted. Please con­tact Mary 085 7152306 / Daireen 087 9980472.
