Everyone has a collection of stuff they no longer need, want or use. A car boot sale is the ideal place to get rid of it. Just fill up your car, find a small table and come along and set up your stall. The next in the series of very successful Car Boot Sales will be held on Saturday, August 25th, at the Old Creamery Yard between O’Rourkes Cross and Bruree village. Proceeds of the sale go towards the sportsfield development. Sellers can set up from 8.00 am and the admission is €10 for cars or €15 for vans. The sale is open to the public from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm and admission is just €2 for adults. Children are admitted free. Tea and refreshments will be available. The sale is well worth a visit and you never know what bargain you might pick up.
