Keeping our head above the water!

I started the shop in 2001 with the idea of sausages and we have grown so much in the last 13 years. We are far more than just a shop. We are the Irish community! Not to praise ourselves too much. What we help do is a lot more than selling Irish goods. We got involved in the St. Patrick’s Day parade 6 years ago and we helped add a festival that has grown nearly as big as July 4th. We are very involved in The Kentucky Rose Center. We are on the committee that helps find girls from around Kentucky and send them to The Rose of Tralee. We founded the Lexington Celtic association that meets the 1st Thursday of every month for an Irish culture evening.  With free Irish dance lessons from the Kentucky McTeggart Irish dancers and music by Liam Fancy!

Right now we are finding business a little tough. There is a lot of construction where we are and it’s hard to get to us. You really have to want too! We have a parking spot beside our shop which helps a little. We will find a way to hang in here till it’s all done!  But we are in desperate need for the Irish community to help support a local business!

Thank you all so very much

Hope to see you soon.
