Christmas craft delights and much more at Ballylinan's festive Craft Fair

People in Laois, Kildare and Carlow special Christmas edition of the Ballylinan Craft Fair takes place this weekend.

After a very successful Halloween market, the organisers have decided to host a special festive market where can enjoy a festive day and pick up a perfect Christmas present.

This year the organisers aim to have children's activities including a chance to meet Santa. There's plenty of Christmas entertainment, a raffle and a prize for the best table and more.

The stalls include everything from woodcrafts, ceramics, metalworks to personalised gifts, bric-a-brac, baking and sweets and treats.

Entry is free for visitors and the organisers still have a few stalls remaining. Anyone who is interesting in attending and a table is €10.

All proceeds paid by crafters go towards the maintenance and upkeep of the ABK Centre in Ballylinan to host community events and projects.

More information can be found on the Ballylinan Craft Fair Facebook Page -

Numerous prices and raffle on the day and fun is promised for all the family.

The market takes place on Sunday, December 2 at the ABK Centre (formerly St. Patrick's National School or Old School), Athy Road, Ballylinan from 12 noon to 3 pm.

The ABK is located on the N78 Athy to Castlecomer Road. Eircode: R14 CX97

Stalls to be set up 11 am to 12 noon. No setup time afterwards. Crafter parking for stall holders is located on the grounds behind the Hall.
