Cooley Charity Christmas Market
Sun 10th Dec in St Mary’s Hall (beside Cooley Kickhams Complex) This is an indoor community Christmas market which is situated on the main Dundalk to Carlingford Road just 3 kms from Carlingford. The market is like none other – there are no private stall holders.
It contains an abundance of stalls laden with goods which have been donated by the local community. Behind all of the tinsel and glitter of the market lies a community who are reaching out to their friends and neighbours living with dementia. Each cent spent at the market is donated to The Birches Alzheimer Day Care Centre.
The market is a showcase of the labours of many living on the remote Cooley peninsula. There will be stalls selling home baking, free range eggs, jams, chutneys, fruit, vegetables, and hand crafted items. There are also stalls selling a wide range of items from vintage delph to logs, candles and jewellery. For the kiddies, there is a lucky dip, a sweet trolly and an opportunity to meet Mrs Claus.
Shoppers are invited to take a break from their shopping, and relax in the gaily decorated ‘Pop Up’ Christmas themed coffee shop.
Market runs from 9 am to 1 pm. Admission is free.
