On 23rd of April, fifth and transition year business and economics students were given an insight into the running  of a local business in Castlebar.

Aran McMahon co-owner of Rua on Spencer St and Cafe Rua on New Antrim street, gave an inspiring and informative presentation on the twelve main steps to owning and running your own business.

Aran has  invited students to carry out a SWOT analysis and to submit ideas on possible expansion for Rua.

Well done to all the students involved.

Many thanks to Aran for his time.
