The Carrickmacross Market operates each Thursday on Main Street in Carrickmacross. The market represents a typical casual trading market similar to many other such markets which operate throughout the country on a designated “market day” each week.

IOMST were contacted in relation to a challenging trading environment currently being experiencedby the market. These centred around a slow business environment which had resulted in a numberof traders leaving the market as they felt it was no longer financially viable to remain in place. This has subsequently led to a fragmented and disparate appearance which discourages further visitorsand additional traders from attending, further damaging the appearance and reputation of the market as an attractive trading venue.

dreamstime 630505Monaghan County Council is currently participating in the Dept. of Transport’s Active Travel Towns initiative, which seeks to encourage more people to walk or cycle rather than use private cars for all journeys. The aim is to shift as many people as possible out of their cars and onto the streets when they are making local journeys. This applies to shoppers, school children, and also to you and your employees.
