Museum of Childhood & Tara’s Palace Raises €40,000 for Irish Children’s Charities.

The Museum of Childhood & Tara’s Palace has donated €40,000 to 7 Irish Children’s Charities.

The beneficiaries of monies raised last year include:

Jenny Gamble presents a cheque for €5,000 to the Make a Wish Foundation

Barnardos – €10,000

The Red Door School for Autistic Children – €5,000

The Children’s Sunshine Home, Leopardstown – €5,000

The Jack and Jill Foundation – €5,000

Clare Crusaders – €5,000

Rainbows Ireland – €5,000

Nicola O'Connor, Una Keating and some 6th class pupils from St. Oliver Plunkett N.S. Malahide

Make a Wish Foundation – €5,000

The Tara’s Palace Trust would like to thank all the wonderful volunteers that we have had since the Museum opened at Malahide Castle in the year 2000. Without the dedication and generosity of our volunteers and those who have visited the Museum over the years these donations to Irish Charities would not be possible.

We would like to thank some local retailers who have very generously sponsored various events that we have held at the Museum including SuperValu Malahide, Dunnes Stores Portmarnock, Gardenworks Malahide and Kinsealy Garden Centre.

The Museum would also like to thank the Malahide Gazette, Enjoy and other local newspapers who have always been great supporters of the Museum of Childhood & Tara’s Palace and have helped increase awareness of the Museum amongst the local community.

Due to a major redevelopment of the Malahide Castle Courtyard by Fingal County Council, the Museum of Childhood & Tara’s Palace will have to relocate for the coming season. We would hope to display Tara’s Palace if a suitable location becomes available. Updates will be available on the website

The Museum of Childhood is also on Facebook Twitter and YouTube.
