12 Days of Christmas Decoration - Tara O’Brien
This decoration is part of a set of 12 decorations inspired by a newly rewritten version of the old festive song, seeking to modernise Christmas traditions for a more inclusive modern Ireland. All proceeds are being used to train and upskill women from refugee backgrounds in We Make Good’s Textile Studio. The decorations themselves are being crafted by participants of Cairde Enterprises, an education and training centre in Limerick which works with men and women who have experience of the criminal justice system.
Mna a Toasting– Little Christmas or Nollaig na mBan was traditionally a time when women got a day off from the housework. Nollaig na mBan is now more of a celebration and acknowledgement of the fantastic women in our lives.
