About Maureen O'Mahony Painting heirloomsFamily portrait by Maureen O'Mahony Portrait Artist

Research has shown that when you buy from an independent locally owned business instead of from a corporate business, your money is then spent in local business and services thus strengthening the local economy. According to the ISME for every €10 spent locally it generates more that €40 of benefit to local communities. By switching just one tenth of our ‘imported shopping ‘ to Irish goods and services it would shift the balance in favour of local producers, manufacturers and retailers .GAA Art Little Boy Kerry Jersey in the Sam Maguire picking up a football

Carbon Footprint

Local businesses employ local people decreasing carbon emission. Buying  from farmers markets ensures fresh locally grown food.  If its not local it was brought by a boat, train or plane. The fuel consumption as a result raises your food miles. Less pollution and traffic congestion reduces the environmental impact.
