Don't forget to check out Irene Brady's annual festive charity shop this weekend. The charity shop will return to its familiar location in Hibernian Court (beside the popular Courtyard Cafe) and will run on Thurs to Saturday, Nov 29 to Dec 1 and then for two more days on Mon-Tues, December 3 and 4.

This year the shop will be ran in memory of the late Jenny Groves of St Matthew's Park in Ballymahon.

Jenny fought a defiant battle with cancer but sadly passed away in early September and leaves behind husband, Mark, and their children, Becky, Matty, Liam and Ellie.

Mark is well known around the county for his MG soccer academy but this was largely put on hold as Jenny fought her battle over the summer months.
Last year's shop was a great success and helped raise €4961 for the Oncology Unit in Cavan General Hospital.

If you can volunteer a few hours over the weekend to assist in the shop or help Irene get it organised in time, just get in touch.
