A good crowd attended the First multi-cultural coffee morning which was held in The Edmund Rice centre on Wednesday last, 8th March. Laughter and chatter filled the room as the smell of tempting treats filled the air. “Isolation can be very difficult – particularly in a foreign country” organiser Elisabeth Ruytenburg told me. “We just thought it would be nice for people to get together and get to know each other, food is something we can all relate to and we all enjoy so it’s important to have a safe environment where we can all meet and have a cup of tea and something to eat.” Elisabeth and her friends, who are Muslim, set up a mother and toddlers group last year which meets every other Tuesday at no1 Viewmount. “We have a cuppa and a chat and discuss what is going on in our community but we are not exclusive and mix with other groups in the community Lisa explained. – their next meetup will be Tuesday 21st March from 10 – 12.00.

Elisabeth, who’s originally from Holland, has been a visitor to Ireland since she was a toddler. “I’ve loved Ireland since a young age” she told me “I came for six months and I’m still here fifteen years later” she laughed “Ireland is a beautiful country. The staff at the Edmund Rice centre are fantastic, we’d love to hold another coffee morning” she added. The next mother and toddlers meet up is Tuesday 21st March from 10.00 - 12.00.
