A very successful pop up music session took place place last Saturday, organised by Kilkenny teen singer/songwriter Eve Tuohy, to raise money for Lifeline Forum co-ordinating suicide prevention initiatives in kilkenny and also to publicise the new, Inspiring Kilkenny initiative.
This shop opened on December 14, thanks to the generosity of owner Pat Crotty and provides space for some 15 community groups to sell their hand made products and publicise their work. There is also space for developing a volunteer centre and the distribution of information resources. Following excellent sales of crafts and cards over the Christmas period the focus for January is on providing information in the very central location of 74 High St about the work and volunteer needs of the wide range of local groups involved. On Saturday from 3pm a celebration event will take place to appreciate the volunteers and groups who have contributed to the shop since it opened. On January 14 a presentation will be made from 12 to 1pm .
