Preparations are in the final stages for the hosting of Taste of Roscrea 2018. This very popular Food and Craft festival is in its 7th year and has attracted thousands of visitors to the town of Roscrea. The committee have put together an amazing show for his year all which is centred around family and entertainment.

On display for three days will be 40 exhibitors showcasing their various handmade crafts all of which would provide beautiful Christmas gifts. The entertainment for the children will see Story Teller Steve Lally telling tales from the past around Santa and his elves during Saturday and Sunday. Also why not sample our snow globe, face painting, balloon modelling or have a go on the train – ALL FREE!!

We have carol singing, student exhibitions, Bank of Ireland Enterprise night hosted by comedian Alan Shortt and special guest Rob Heffernan and Dale Cronin from Ireland’s Dancing With The Stars.

On Saturday night a major fundraising Fashion Show takes place for St Cronan’s Camogie Club to support the fantastic work of all the volunteers. Special prizes on offer with a complete make over for a lucky lady compliments of Shaws. This is sure to be a night not to be missed.

Come along to support and enjoy the festive atmosphere as Roscrea town comes alive and is the place to visit in the Midlands on December 7, 8 and 9.
