Christmas Cards

Vanessa Wyse Jackson has raised over €300 for Irish Quaker Faith in Action (IQFA) from the sale of Christmas cards she made. Many thanks to all the Friends who supported this. Vanessa says that she will be happy to receive your old Christmas cards again this year – not just the picture on the front but also the typed greeting inside, if it hasn’t been written on. The cards can be dropped either into the Meeting House or sent to her home at 8 Effra Road, Rathmines, any time up to the end of February.

No IQFA Sales this Year? Wrong!

Memoirs of a Reluctant German
Churchtown Friend, Iris Taylor, has a new book out now and  IQFA will benefit from the sale of this book.

“In her very engaging and well-crafted memoir of a life lived in
intercultural spaces, Iris Taylor reflects with good humour and
humanity on the fascinating people and places she has encountered
on her way. This book will appeal not only to readers engaged in
Irish and German Studies but also to those interested in identity,
interculturalism and dealing with the legacy of the past.
Underpinned by her Quaker perspective, Iris Taylor’s book invites
– and deserves – a wide readership”.
Professor Emeritus Jenny Williams
