We went out to Listowel for Dolly Day. We were supporting two charities – Comfort for Chemo and the Kerry Hospice, two great charities. It was to break the World Record to be dressed up as Dolly Parton. We decided that we would dress up as bunny girls as Dolly dressed up like that for […]
Almost to the day four years ago, we started Johnnys Cottage by accident, Breeda was making an apple tart in her kitchen. Miriam called as usual on a Monday night for a cuppa. Miriam decided to go live on Facebook while Breeda was making the tart, it went on for hours. Today we are delighted […]
Miriam just to let you know we’re all thinking of you. Miriam got an injection and it didn’t agree with her. Her leg was swollen, and she’s having an MRI but she’s in great spirits. We’re all wishing you a speedy recovery.
We had a wonderful night on Saturday celebrating my son Seanies 50th birthday. All his brothers and Dad went up and sang a few tunes, we danced and sang the night away until the early hours. Thank you to his wife Edita and everyone that made his night so special. Breeda

Miriam and I had great fun with these lovely ladies. This is a wonderful example of a community project open to everyone, and we encourage everyone to support the wonderful work from The Phoenix Women’s Group and Shed.
I had a wonderful morning with these wonderful Maine Valley Community members. We had a lovely cup of tea and chat and visited the polytunnels which house the allotments. Looking forward to seeing them again on my next visit on Friday, May 5th.
