Today, craft & fashion; tomorrow, building & barbering

A coffee morning and decoupage display held this morning at J & A Shabby Chic introduced Fianna Fail general election candidate Cllr Fiona O'Loughlin to a number of local ladies, writes Brian Byrne.

The event was co-hosted by the shop's owners Antoinette Buckley and Jennifer Monahan, and also incorporated a display of fashion from neighbouring shop Secret Kloset, operated by Shirley Kavanagh Hallion.

Cllr O'Loughlin is hosting a seminar on job opportunities at Ryston Social Club tomorrow night, 10 February from 8pm. It will concentrate on the shortage of skilled labour to the construction trade, as well as outlining opportunities for hairdressing, barbering and beauty.

Speakers will include Brenda Lynch, Adult Education Officer with Kildare & Wicklow Education Training Board (KWETB), and beauty career expert Aileen Maher. All welcome.
