Open Fair Project.
There was a number of local paraticipants at the Open Fair Project which was held at the West County Hotel on Sunday last.  John Hogan, a local craftsman, living in Ruan had some beautifully crafted furniture.   Noelle Tierney from Toonagh showed the jewellery she makes, including fun and funky pieces, Nora Custy also from Toonagh had a vintage clothing stand and Bernard Daffy from Ruan had a stand with old prints and photos and bric a brac.   It was a show to promote local one person enterprise and gave people a chance to see what is out there in their own localities.
