In Pictures: First Mountrath Cottage Market proves a big success

The rain didn’t dampen the spirits in Mountrath on Saturday morning as people turned out for the first Cottage Market which was held in the town.

Organized by Mountrath Community Forum, the Cottage Market will take place on the first Saturday of every month.

Face-painting, homemade baked goods, creative pieces from local artists were all available as well as a warm atmosphere throughout the day.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring the market experience back to the town,” said organisers prior to the event. “Some people will remember the days of the Country Markets in Mountrath at The Macra Hall and its links to community, heritage and culture.

“This is a very unique, earthy and community driven project. We are excited to see how our new Cottage Market will blaze its own path of community, spirit and individuality in our town and surrounding area.”
