Car Boot Sale

Car Boot Sale in aid of Haiti Mission Saturday 2nd June in Inch. In February €3000 was raised by organising a concert in the Arklow Bay Hotel. Recently Sister Ann mentioned that she was having a house built for a severely paralyed  young woman who she rescued on the mountain after the earthquake. At the time a very simple building was erected in the place where Kyline was found. She is fed every few days but Sister would like to have a house built locally where Kyline would be surrounded by people. If we could raise another €3000 we could provide this house. Sister describes Kyline as a saint who never complains is always smiley and so grateful to be alive. The bigger the stall the more we can raise. Please help by bringing any unwanted items to Avoca, Barniskey or Templerainey. We had a house built last year. Can we do it again in 2018?
