The Sligo Gift Guide – Part 1

I put a call out for Sligo businesses to feature in a gift guide and I was inundated with requests, so here is part one. Some of these will only appeal to those in Sligo but there are many who will deliver nationwide. It’s also a handy guide for who may have family and friends in Sligo and want to send something local to them.
