Granard Area Action Group: An important meeting of the sponsoring group takes place in the Information Office Main Street Granard on Tuesday 6 September 2011 at 8.00pm. All members are requested to attend.
Granard Country Markets: Granard Country Market raised 79 euros and 77 cents for Famine Relief in Somalia last Friday morning. A Smoothie Corner offering delicious, healthy smoothies was set up in the market for people to savour while making a donation to this very good cause. We would like to thank everyone who supported this appeal. Our Heritage Day event was also a great success. There were free samples of the best of Country Markets breads cakes jams and homemade butter with demonstrations on boxty making and crochet enjoyed by all.
