North West Hospice has teamed up with Loughan House Open Facility in Blacklion again this year to produce fresh, locally grown shamrock for St Patrick’s Day.
Residents at the Blacklion facility have grown almost 3,000 pots of shamrock to be sold over St Patrick’s weekend in aid of North West Hospice. Shamrock will be available throughout Carrick-on-Shannon on Thursday, March 13 and in Manorhamilton on Saturday 15. Shamrock costs €2 per pot and can be re-planted or worn on our national day. They are also available to buy from North West Hospice.
Speaking about the project, Bernadette McGarvey from North West Hospice said “We are extremely grateful to Loughan House for their ongoing support through this shamrock project. Our partnership with Loughan House is a great example of how different groups in the community can work together to great success We hope everyone will support our hospice and wear their shamrocks with pride!”
