We were awarded the Fairtrade Town of Ireland in 2009. We are trying to make the townspeople aware of goods that are available that are Fair Trade.
WHY BECOME A FAIRTRADE TOWN?
By choosing to support Fairtrade, your community can add it’s voice to demands for a trade system that puts people, not profit, at the heart of the transaction. Our voices become louder when we speak together.
Working towards Fairtrade Town status will bring together neighbours, groups, local authorities and businesses towards a common goal and a shared achievement. Becoming a Fairtrade Town is a lot of work, but a lot of fun. It will also be an achievement everyone can celebrate and a powerful message about how your community wants trade to work.
