Default Sunday Times article features JumbleTowner, Eibhlin Ni Sheambrai (16/1/11)

Hi Everyone,

JumbleTowner Eibhlin (Helen) Ni Sheambrai features in an article about re-use/life-cycling in the Sunday Times (16/1/11). The article is by Siobhan Maguire and can be found in the "Home" section of that paper.

Many thanks to Siobhan who has highlighted the good work of re-users/life-cyclers before, and thanks also to Eibhlin (and previously featured JumbleTowners -- Eily, Linn, Summersun, and Unapam) for so kindly agreeing to participate in JumbleTown's press coverage.

Regards

I just read the article! Brilliant. I was a bit confused at first looking for 'Eibhlin'
but I recognised the paint colour on the outside of the house lol.
Nice to put a face to the name :-)

I too,have furnished my house(and a few friends) from Jumbletown and I can honestly say I dont know what Id have done without it,thanks again everyone!

(No way Id be as talented as Eibhlin..I just leave well enough alone lol)

Well done on getting such publicity and hopefully it will bring a whole load of new members.

...and I agree with you, it's a great article -- Eibhlin/Helen has done us proud!

Default Eibhlin away from JumbleTown...

Hi Everyone,

After much arm-twisting, I've convinced the ever-modest Eibhlin/Helen that her life away from JumbleTown should be mentioned in this thread for the simple reason that her life-cycling and revamping work is but a small part of a busy working-life dedicated to helping others, being creative, and living sustainably.

Caraiosa, the small holistic retreat centre she runs with her husband in Westmeath "offers a place to pause, to take time away from your everyday life." Details at the links below:
