SOLAS - Craft & Farmers Markets, Food & Acoustic Picnic

Oh, please national media – not another news story on how wonderful SOLAS is! The September / October edition of ‘The Irish Garden’ magazine contains a 4-page article on SOLAS stating it “Radically breaks the mould when compared to traditional Irish Garden centres”.

David Maher co-owner of SOLAS explains “although we had known we would feature in the autumn edition the nature of the review left us feeling very special. From day one we had set out to be both different in terms of layout, community and the environment and also better in terms of food, price and customer experience. The fact the article was sponsored by Bord Bia is very much in keeping with our strong ‘Local Quality Food’ ethos”.
