Our online Pop Up Shop has proved hugely popular during lockdown but we are delighted to be able to host our next Pop Up shop at our Studio in Hollyblue House.
As usual we will have lots of great bargains and lovely gifts for all the family, bric-a-brac, giftware, collectables and household items at prices to suit everyone’s pocket.
However this event will be extra special as we are privileged to be selling a limited number of original paintings by Sr Caomhín from the Convent of Mercy, Gort. As you may be aware Sr Caomhín, as well as all of the Sisters in Gort will be relocating to Galway in the near future. Sr Caomhín has been attending our Art Classes at Hollyblue House since 2014 and has produced a collection of amazing art work during that time. She has now very generously offered her paintings to us to raise much needed funds for our support centre.
We are delighted to be able to offer Art Therapy classes with Helen Griffin starting in Hollyblue House on Monday 13th

We are delighted to share that the Marie Keating Mobile Information Unit will be visiting Hollyblue House on Wednesday 20th October, from 10am to 3pm.
The Marie Keating Foundation’s work focuses on raising awareness of all of the common cancers affecting men and women in Ireland and the healthy lifestyle choices that reduce the risk of cancer.
Staffed by a specialist nurse, the mobile information units visit community groups, workplaces, organisations and public places to bring cancer information straight into the heart of communities nationwide. The mobile information units are stocked with take-home information leaflets and packs on the various cancers. The Marie Keating Foundation nurses can talk to people in a private area on board the unit about any concerns that they may have about cancer, either for themselves or for someone else such as a family member or friend.
Please feel free to drop by and say Hello.
