A Christmas Fairytale

Posted 6 days ago, 09 Dec 2019 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

Hello everybody ! Its been awhile since our last update and we are delighted to leave everyone know about the update on our brand new memorial garden. We are so proud to be sponsors of the official opening of the new garden which will kick off with this years biggest christmas event 'A Christmas Fairytale' and we are thrilled to be working with Asteroid Entertainment alongside Jamie Daly who has run some fantastic events including Starz In The Hood , Limerick Toyshow. Frankie Daly Cllr, Alan Daly and others to bring a christmas nobody will ever forget to your doorstep here in Moyross. Lets not forget where it all started all those years ago , An empty plot that the community came together with their hearts and efforts to make something beautiful where those near and dear could feel comfort , And peace with their own thoughts in prayer. The help wasn't there for us so we made it possible for ourselves as a group of people standing together for what they believe in and wanted to remember our lost youths over the years. Then we added a memorial plot for all our fallen hero's of the 1916 rising as so many of our loved ones fought for the rights , and voices that we have today and were taken from us through there heroic actions. Here we are now with a new garden , Yes our old memorial garden was taken away and all we asked for in return was for that safe place to be restored and to be given the support and co-operation that we could have done with many years ago by them rebuilding what they took, Not a penny was exchanged for the trade as we highlighted before all it was ever about for us was having a place to go to be at peace and remember those who are gone and that has been done justice. So here's to the future! We look forward to speaking/meeting many of you on Sunday from 1-6 @the memorial garden in Delmege Park! It will be a fun filled day for everyone and every childs dream come true .. We will see you all there! Have A Merry Christmas!

RELOCATION, RELOCATION!!

Posted 3 months ago, 11 Sep 2019 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

So after alot of plans and ideas we have decided its best for us to relocate the location of our garden just around the corner to a tidier more intimate space! As always the garden will be upkept to the highest standard and like it always has been everyone is welcome! We are sad to see our original community garden be uprooted it has given us so much joy , peace , and content the last 10 years and was our safe place for a long time. Thank you for the endless support and help the last 10 years we couldn't have done it without our tight knit community here in Moyross. Chinese whispers have also come into play that apparently we got a sum of money to move the garden which is absolutely FALSE. Our garden has always been about the people and the relocation came down to it being easier to maintain for ourselves and to accommodate the new plan for housing in Moyross we just wanted to make sure that was clarified for the people who don't know fact from fiction. Our newly renovated garden should be built in the coming months and we can't wait to have a celebration to official open it to the public, We are hoping to have a blessing carried out by the bishop and some fun for the kids on the day also, we will keep you updated on more information. If you would like to reminisce and look back on past articles to see all the amazing memories and events over the past 10 years you'll find them all documented in our articles and events section. A special thanks to our garden committee and every friendly face that have helped us along the way! Also to Anthony and his team at Road bridge, Shane Doherty , Frankie Daly and Willie O'Dea for accomodating our new garden! Especially Tommy Daly this project could have never been what it was without you!

The Moyross Residence Alliance would like to thank Mr. Willie O'Dea for acting on our behalf involving issues we had with the garden. It's nice to know we are not on our own and that when we need the support it is there. Also we just welcomed 4 baby chicks to the garden the kids are loving the new additions. We hope to get some funding together in the coming weeks to build them a new hut for them, and also plan on refurbishing the wall art nearing the end of the summer. Thanks to all who lent a hand the last week!

Moyross Residence Alliance committee would hope to see everyone for a small celebration to celebrate the 3rd year of our garden of remembrance addition in the community garden. its great to see the garden looking so well and getting the sun for awhile to enjoy it. Thanks to everyone that helps us day in, day out with the garden , The Moyross community itself , and the kids who are the greatest helpers ever! They even helped us get the walls painted in tip top shape. Also to Sinead McDonnell with Tidy towns who made a donation it helped towards some beautiful new flowers and helped us get the solar lights finished. Its great to see the garden is valued by so many other than ourselves and really gives us a bit of hope and prayer when we need it.. We hope everyone is enjoying the weather and we will be announcing an official date for the celebration closer to august! Thank you.

Garden Refurbishments happening on this beautiful long weekend!

Posted 7 months ago, 05 May 2019 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

As we all say the nice weather brings out the best in us, So with a spring in out step we decided to take the time to plant our new season flowers and veg in the garden and we could not have gotten better weather for it!! The storm gave us an awful hit so we had alot of repairs that needed to be carried out such as the damage to the toilet , greenhouse , and stone paving and with the luck of god we are almost there! The garden is our pride and joy and its a safe place for alot of people to go and be at peace with there thoughts or just for a time out so it was a priority that we got on it as soon as possible even though the funds were scarce. Our next plan of action is to get more artwork done on the walls of the garden and paint the chicken coop and greenhouse so hopefully this sunny spell will last a while longer! God bless and enjoy your long weekend we know we have! Big thanks to Steve , Chloe , Daniel , Keith , John , David , Angela , Jamie , Tommy and Deirdre for the helping hands.

Frankie Daly for number 1!

Posted 7 months ago, 05 May 2019 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

Up and coming elections would like to remind the northside to keep the gentleman that is Frankie Daly in mind for their number one vote!! Frankie is genuinely out to help and better the community and stand up for important issues that others would like to sweep under the rug such as the Nurses Strike not so long ago, Frankie has always been supportive of our garden and officially opened our 1916 garden of remembrance along with Willie O'Dea have always been happy to invest there time in community projects. His actions have always spoke louder than words and Frankie is a man for the people, This is who we need as a pillar of our community for our opinions and thoughts to be taken note of and brought to the right people so we can see results and most importantly CHANGE!! WE KNOW WHO WE ARE VOTING FOR!!
