There was a great turnout yesterday for our AGM in Dublin. Markets from all over the country arrived in glorious sunshine. The support is very encouraging, and an increase in younger membership ensures the future of the organisation.
Our guests included Seamus Parle of Cooney Parle Accountants and Auditors, Stephen Doyle, First Ireland Insurance , and Guest Speaker JJ Healy Culinary Lecturer CIT.

There was agreement that a national fundraising campaign be carried out for Headstrong, the Centre for National Youth Mental Health. The monies will go towards establishing services, information and assistance for families and youths in their own communities.
We said goodbye to three of our Management Commitee. Emer Duffy, Pamela Henry and Frances O Brien have between them given many years to Country Markets, thank you all!

Our Country Markets Ltd aprons were also launched, and will be delivered to the markets by the Regional Reps in the coming weeks.
