Craftfair at The Seanchaí on Sunday December 6 2015

When I was in The Square at 10.30 Cookarama were just arriving and setting up their stall.

One os Santa’s elves was at the door, greeting the families who came to partake in the Lapland experience.

The Crafty Bookworm, Maria Leahy was the first stall holder I met.

Mary Mooney was doing a spot of Christmas shopping.

Dawn Thomas brought her grandson, Noah to help her out.

lillian of Lillian’s Bookart had some really unusual pieces on display. They would sure be a talking point in anyone’s Christmas display.

Ruth O’Quigley couldn’t resist the beautiful tapestry cards.

Pat Murphy of Woodford Pottery is planning to build a new studio in 2016.

Ella O’Sullivan had some beautiful hand made items on her stall.

These sweet treats looked mouthwateringly good.

Noreen Buckley was pondering which Minion to purchase from Kelly.

Cookarama were doing a steady trade. I can recommend their lemon drizzle cake.

The show must go on. Seanchaí staff were kept busy as well.

Canon Declan helpfully posed behind the counter for me.
