I'm not sure if anyone seen Nationwide during the week. There was a documentary about A new Community Co-Operative that was started by local women, in Loughmore, County Tipperary. I'm not a business minded person, but I know they've invited everyone in the Community to become shareholders in the enterprise.
We are delighted to announce that our Community Co-Operative Shop & Tearooms is now open at The Cottage, in Loughmore.
Loughmore Community Shop & Tearooms Co-Operative is a unique venture and will be the first of itís kind in the Republic of Ireland. We would welcome you as a shareholder and encourage you to be part of it.
This new facility will enhance the lives of everyone in the community, offering a warm and welcoming place to come to enjoy our tearooms, purchase groceries, newspapers and locally produced foodstuffs from our shop or items from our Art Gallery and Craft selection. We will also be holding a Village Market on the first Sunday of every month, selling all locally home produced items of confectionery, breads, cakes, jams etc. and hand crafted items made by local craftspeople.
If you would like to become a volunteer, producer or offer a service from The Cottage we would be delighted.
These are not clapped out hippys, they're ordinary Irish women, not that there's anything wrong with clapped out hippys. I think this is a super idea. They grow their own food, and make their own arts and crafts, and have invited others to make things for a market they've opened. Fairplay to them. I'll definitely give them a visit some time this year..
