Balbriggan ICA Quilt Project in Association with Tesco

December 10, 2014 0

The very talented ladies at Balbriggan ICA undertook a project in conjunction with Tesco Balbriggan to create a quilt which would be raffled off in aid of Temple Street Childrens Hospital.  The project titled ‘wrap Temple street in love ‘ was the brain child of Tesco’s Community Champion Lisa McEvoy who spoke to President of Balbriggan ICA Frances Nixon to see if the ladies in the Balbriggan Guild would like to help out.

If any ICA groups around the country would like to get involved and make more quilts please contact Lisa at

James McNamara, Tesco Balbriggan Store Manager and Lisa McEvoy would like to thank the amazing ladies who made the quilt to ‘wrap Temple Street in love’
