On the 30th of November last, the students in the SGC TY Mini Company ran a stall at the Castlebar Christmas Market in the Breaffy House Events Arena.
In the run up to the event, students made handcrafted products during school time in the hope of selling them to customers on the day. A lot of time, effort and commitment was shown by all students in the class in the days and weeks leading up to the event. Christmas Cribs, Logs, Cards and Festive Treats were made during class time and also after school. The Advertising and Marketing Team of Darragh Judge, Maitiu McCormack, Ryan Gibbons, Cian Mitchell and David Conlon did a great job of making posters and collecting spot prizes from many generous businesses around the town for use in conjuction with the Lucky Dip competition that the company were hoping to run at the market.
The Friday evening before the event we set up the stall with all of our products from 6-8:30pm. On Saturday the 30th of November Students from the company arrived in Breaffy House at 10am to put the finishing touches to the stall in the hope of a busy day ahead. Large crowds entered the arena from as early as 10am in to see what bargains they could find. Our finely crafted products attracted much interest throughout the day which rewarded our hard work and effort. The Lucky Dip Competition was very popular with the customers with some people even entering twice! As the day drew to an end it became clearly evident that the stall at the Castlebar Christmas Market was a huge success for the students of the TY Mini Company.
We would like to thank our TY Mini Company Co-ordinator Ms.Flynn, Principal Mr.Hyland, Deputy Principal Mr.Hannon, TY Co-ordinator Mr. Kelleher and everyone else who made our Christmas Market a great triumph!

The money that Ireland needs for 2014:
€6.8bn- meet bond redemption- in other words to repay investors who loaned us money and whose loans have matured.
€9.6bn- to fund exchequer borrowing- to bridge the gap between spending and revenue next year for the State.
€0.5bn- to replace the bonds which the CB has to sell as part of the promissory note deal.
TOTAL €16.9 bn.
Where it might come from??
€10.7bn reducing the states cash pile which will be more than €20bn at the end of this year.
A bit more than €6bn to be raised???
