The first SVP shop in Mid-Louth has been opened in Dunleer.
The need for this facility was identified some time ago and, with the aid of support from the Oriel Regional Council, a number of enthusiastic volunteers set about turning an aspiration into reality.
Since opening, the shop has proved to be a huge success.
It has elevated the profile of St. Vincent de Paul as well as providing a much-needed service to the community of Dunleer and surrounding areas. Generous donors have provided a wide range of items for sale.
The shop can be contacted on phones 086 0336110 or 086 0336111
Pictured at the official opening were Conor Sparks, President of St. Brigid’s Conference Dunleer; Tina Dyas, Treasurer; Liam Reilly, Dundalk Area Council President; Michael Fahey, Mid Louth Area Council President and Margaret Dowd, Secretary St. Brigid’s Conference.
