Here’s what Cathaoirleach Eileen Mannion had to say when Ollie Turner posed the question about what kind of projects were going on:
This week I had the opportunity to be in Milltown. The children there had done a gastronomical heritage project. There’s two schools – Milltown and Belmont. Their project was so wonderful and it’s a project that’s been rolled out across the county. The National Folklore collection in UCD are archiving their project because they have come together with their grandparents and parents and recorded the rich heritage of food and tradition and utensils. That’s a wonderful achievement to them. Cathaoirleach Eileen Mannion
