Drumanilra Kitchen Craft Fair opens

It’s full steam ahead today at the Christmas Food & Craft Fair at Drumanilra Farm Kitchen, Elphin St, Boyle.

With all stands inside the marquee, there is no need to worry about the inclement weather.

Even the Blacksmith is house indoors!

And if you are still feeling cold, the wood burning stove has the restaurant like a mini oven!

There is something for everyone at Drumanilra Craft Fair today.
