Fine Gael MEP for Dublin, Brian Hayes, has today (Wednesday) welcomed the news that a new market will run in Bushy Park, Terenure every Saturday from 11am-4pm. Following the success of similar markets in the People’s Park, Dun Laoghaire and Marley Park, Hayes congratulated the volunteers behind the opening day’s party and the 40 plus stalls the market will hold.
“I want to congratulate the work of the volunteers working with Dublin City Council behind Terenure Village Market (TVM). This is an excellent example of neighbours coming together to deliver a new amenity for their community. I visited the then occasional Terenure Village Market and I am delighted it’s now on a regular footing and has a dedicated home. This new market in Bushy Park will be a real benefit to the local communities in the D6W and wider D6/ D14 area and beyond, providing a weekly market.”
“The official opening this Saturday (28th March) will provide a festival atmosphere. The launch day will include music, magic, face-painting, giant games and the arrival of the Easter Bunny. The real essence of the market will be the 40 stalls offering crafts, jewellery, artisan produce and fantastic food. I’ve seen how markets like this in the People’s Park in Dun Laoghaire and in Marley Park have benefited local communities and I wish the traders and patrons well with their new market.”
