I love Branley’s Yard in Rathcormac, Sligo. It’s such a friendly, welcoming place, and there’s always so much to see. The great news is that the market will reopen this Saturday June 5th, 2021, it’s being transformed to become a large open air market, which will be partly covered. There will also be ample space for outdoor seating and also a entertainment area with a stage for music, whenever the restrictions allow. You can expect a wide variety of stalls, including food, crafts, clothing, and more.
Let me tell about studios at Branley’s Yard, they are home to artists, makers, jewellers, and a variety of shops. It’s a fantastic place to visit and find the perfect piece to brighten your home, or a gift for a friend. You can meet the artists and perhaps even see them at work. When restrictions ease you will even be able to take a class with some of them.
