Last Sunday saw the very successful relaunch of the Rathangan Market in Rathangan Community Centre, which kicked off at 10.00am – late afternoon!

Karen, one of the Rural Social Scheme participants, reflected on the very successful day which raised €450 for the group.

There were loads of treats, arts, crafts, jewellery,  clothes and home baking on display. Below are a sample of some of the items from the day. Continued success to the Rathangan Market and they look forward to seeing everyone again next month in Rathangan Community Centre.

Some of the stalls from this month were:

Duchess Anne, Vintage Fairy, Aaliyah’s Hair Bows, Heaps of Hoops, Aoife’s Homemade Delights, I’m not done clothing, Andy’s love of Cakes and Treats and Many more !

Keep an eye on our Facebook Page when we will be sharing the date !

The Rural Social Scheme is a part time employment scheme for ELIGIBLE FARMERS working a 19.5 hour week.

The Rural Social Scheme was set up in 2004 to provide income support for low income farmers in return for part time work in the community.

It is based on a 19.5 hour flexible week to ensure your participation does not affect your farming activities.
