The Bábóg Project is making a doll for each of the estimated 6000 babies that are said to have died in Ireland's Mother and Baby Homes.
For me one of the most beautiful and healing parts of this project is holding workshops.
These workshops allow people from all walks of life, all backgrounds, all abilities to come and work together.

There is something so moving about shared work, we remember our humanity, our humility.
We learn new skills and make new friends.
We can feel part of something bigger than ourselves. Something kind.
Something selfless.
Something healing for ourselves, our families, our communities, for Ireland.

In 2019 I ran several workshops in and around Cork City and County and I have plans for more in 2020.

What I would really like to do is bring a workshop as close as possible to the sites of the Mother and Baby homes where the babies died.

But I need help to do this. I will need somewhere (preferably within an organisation) that can host the workshop and I will need funding to make it possible.

If you have any contacts in community groups, arts groups, women's groups in the following places that could help us make this happen please send us a message or email [email protected]

Thank you as always for your help...

Last reminder for this week public information session on the proposed Poddle flood alleviation scheme (Thursday 7.30pm at the Four Provinces). This is a great opportunity for everyone to ask questions, express their view and hear what others have to say. All welcome, see you there! ... See MoreSee Less

Today at 2:30pm we are launching a report which makes 7 recommendations to improve drug education and prevention in RoI. Delighted to have @BobbySmyth4 @AodhanORiordain and Dr. Laura O'Reilly from @BYAP30 speaking at the event. If you would like a copy of the report let us know.

How are PR companies and brands still hosting events in The Ivy when the absolute shit show of how they give staff their tips is consistently highlighted? I know carrying cash is becoming rarer, but think about having a tip stash of cash wherever you go this festive season 💸💶

Gutted but not defeated! Illegal dumping at Durrow Green & near 370 Cashel Road.
