Happy New Year. I hope that 2019 brings all that you hope for.

Let me be blunt. We need your help. I know that you receive a lot of requests at this time of the year but, if I don’t ask now, there is a real danger that An Taisce will not be able to continue the work it has been doing for over 70 years.

We have a very broad remit. Indeed, that is our great strength. However, with this comes a great deal of work and a great amount of cost. We have a dedicated group of volunteers and staff who achieve much on a very limited budget, but we badly need additional funds. We could also do with help in tackling some of the many jobs that continually crop up around Tailors Hall and elsewhere.

The whole funding model for organisations such as us has changed. We are attempting to address this via our new website, which will not only keep you up to date on what we are doing but also make it easier for the public to support us.

If you can make a donation we would be very pleased; Any donation over €250 brings with it additional tax benefits. You can donate online at http://www.antaisce.org/donations or by contacting Susan (Monday - Thursday) at 01 707 7076

If everyone could get just one additional member that would go a long way towards keeping our work going.

Please consider either or both of the above.
