Senator Fitzgerald Congratulates Niellstown Volunteers on Opening of Extended Charity Shop

Local Fine Gael Senator wished the newly revamped St Vincent de Paul charity shop in Neillstown Shopping Centre all the best as the shop reopened their doors to an extended store this week.

Senator Fitzgerald and Pat Burke Walsh, the former Principal of Collinstown Park, were on hand to help cut the ribbon at the official opening.

“I was delighted to be invited here today to support the great community activists who volunteer their time in this store. The place looks fabulous and I have already picked up a couple of bargains for myself,” Senator Frances Fitzgerald told us.

“Charity shops provide a dual function – not only are they raising much needed funds for charity but they are also offering items to the community at discounted rates, something which is in greater demand in today’s economic climate,” continued Senator Fitzgerald.

Local models were on hand to showcase some of the fashions at the official opening where music was provided by a local DJ and musicians.
