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:
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
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 Malahide.com 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 www.taraspalace.ie
The Museum of Childhood is also on Facebook Twitter and YouTube.
