XL Ruan Store Opened
The Dalcassian Shop, which had been closed for a number of years, has been brought back to life by Quentin and Emer Rice. The shop with a Deli, Bakery, newspapers, Payzone (where people may purchase phone credit, pay ESB and Phone Bills and T.V.licence) and a coffee dock, has been very busy since the store opened. Between full time and part time workers, twelve people are employed in the business and it is hoped that, with the support of the community, it will go from strength to strength, and continue to breathe life into the village.
