Quilts for L’Arche: -   A lovely event took place recently in Kilmoganny when two beautiful knitted quilts were handed over to the L’Arche Community by the family and friends of the late Dettie Byrne. Dettie was a member of the Kilmoganny knitting group and had proposed holding a Knitathon in support of L’Arche but sadly passed away in April 2018 before she could make it happen. Over several weeks last winter, her family and friends got together to make Dettie’s wish come true.

A large group gathered at St. Eoghan’s Centre in Kilmoganny for the presentation and all thoroughly enjoyed a night of chat, tea, cakes, music and a raffle. The quilts were accepted on behalf of L’Arche by core members Helen O’Shea and Declan Egan and Helen spoke movingly of her friendship with Dettie when they were schoolchildren in Kilmoganny.

Dettie’s family wish to thank everyone who remembered her in such a lovely way, those who knitted and assembled the quilts, sponsored prizes for the raffle and all who supported the presentation event which raised €770 for L’Arche.
