CORK SCHOOL PROJECT - 7th ART AUCTION
Cork School Project, Grattan Street, is a multi-denominational
primary school located in the historic Marsh area of the city.
We are fund-raising once again in our continuing efforts to improve facilities at our school. We are holding our 7th Art Auction on the 11th of May 2000 in the Rochestown Park Hotel at 8:00pm.
Proceeds will go towards our building fund. We would like to thank all the artists, parents, and the wider Cork community for their continuing support. Viewing will commence at 7:00am on May 11th to facilitate those with busy schedules. We hope you can attend, enjoy the evening, and perhaps go home with a beautiful piece of art!!

KATHRYNS BEAUTY SPOT
There are three ways to look tanned without the sun.
For use on your face, they act in the same way as a blusher. Make sure that the one you use is not too pearlized, or you will really shimmer in the sun.
These are the safest way to create an instant tan on your face and body. You simply smooth on the cream, then wash it away at the end of the day.
If you haven't tried these formulations for years because you remember the awful smell and streaky results, choose carefully, and you'll create the next best thing to the sun. These products contain ingredients which are absorbed by the skin cells, and turns brown in the presence of oxygen - which creates the 'Tan'. This process usually takes 3 to 4 hours and lasts until these skin cells are naturally shed - which can be from a few days right up to a week.
ANY QUERIES SEND THEM TO THIS OFFICE.

DOUGLAS LONG AGO ...
... was the caption on an old photograph we printed last week. We asked if anybody could identify the group. One of our readers Larry O'Sullivan phoned to tell us that the photo was of "The Douglas and Rochestown Harrier Club" who were based near The Legion of Mary Hall. There was also a second club "The Douglas Nationals" who had their headquarters near John O'Sullivan's bar. Our thanks to Larry for the information.
