Newsflash - Skibbereen Farmers' Market
(& other county-wide markets and fairs) are under threat!
We believe that Cork County Council's proposed new Casual Trading by-laws will have a massive impact on Skibbereen Market, and other markets / fairs within Cork County.
You can read the draft by-laws here (Cork County Council website)
