A Charity shop raising funds for CRY Ireland will open at Main Street, Roscrea from March 5th to 9th next. Thanks to Michael Breen for providing the premises for the shop free of charge. Everything in the shop has been donated and there will be a great selection of goods available in the shop during that week.
