SHOP LOCAL:

Thinking about Christmas shopping​.​   ​Try and buy​ gifts​ from small local businesses and 

​Christmas Markets e.g. local craftspeople, florists, bakers, food producers, knitters, artists, jewellery makers, candle makers etc.    By supporting small businesses, your money goes to​ individuals instead of  multinationals.  A​ Christmas​  gift for ​someone​​ ​who ha​s​​ ​everything !!!!   ​

Trocáire and Concern have an online gift shop where you can purchase practical gifts such as pigs, chick​en​s, rabbits, trees etc​, ​to help the many poor all over the world.​
