A taste of Milltown

There was a great turnout in Milltown Community Centre yesterday, the 28th of August for the launch of the heritage booklet. In this booklet you will find information on historical, cultural and social heritage places of interest in Milltown. Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor, past pupil of Belmont N.S. launched the booklet. Minister for State OPW Flood Relief was in attendance also. The booklet costs €5. We would recommend everyone to buy one. You might find out something about Milltown that you never knew!

There was stands all around the community centre showing exactly what Milltown has to offer. We had our own stand there showcasing our Tree Trail. There was lots of interest in our trail on the day. Siobhán Molloy was the winner of the picnic basket.
