An Siopa is different from other second-hand shops in that it was set up as a place for members of the travelling community to gain work experience and training in retail. It is staffed by volunteers from the traveller community.

An Siopa would like to thank its customers and in particular those who made donations of clothes, books, dvds, cds, bric a brac and toys.

Donations are both needed and appreciated and can be made at the shop which is open from 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday. Donations can also be collected. For further information, contact Anne Marie on 062 31138.
