This enabled them to send Easter eggs out to children living in three direct provision centres in the Dublin area. They were also able to use the remaining eggs for the Annual JRS Ireland Easter Egg Hunt. It took place in Mountjoy Square Park on a gorgeous, sunny Easter Sunday afternoon. After a scramble to find the hidden chocolate eggs there was time to enjoy face painting, ‘creme egg and spoon’ races (see picture), kite making, hoola hooping, football and relay races. The fantastic weather brought about 120 people into the park. The day was a great success, thanks in large part to the assistance of many JRS volunteers.
