Harry Oakley is in 5A. His grandfather, Tom, has a special job. He grows fir trees on a small holding near the Slaney river in Co. Carlow. His forest is full of Nordmann Firs, which are admired for their symmetrical shape, natural scent and glossy needles.
Tom has steadily become a household name in the hearts and homes of our METNS Community. Not only does he sell his magnificent trees to METNS families at a special, discounted rate, he also donates 50% of all profit directly to our school.
Quality 6ft – 12ft Nordmann Firs will range in price from €45 to €60.
Tom’s offer is so generous that we would like to match this kindness by donating a proportion of the funds we raise to Focus Ireland.
Please note that all trees will already be netted for ease of transport home & it thus won’t be possible to see the trees on full display at the collection point. In the unlikely event you’re unable to find a suitable tree on your chosen collection day, we are happy to refund your order. Trees can be collected on Sunday 5th Dec – 11:00 to 13:00, Monday 6th Dec – 18:00 to 20:00 or Friday 10th Dec – 18:00 to 20:00.
