We Receive Support from...

Although this Heritage Centre is run privately by a Limited Company, the Tulsk Action Group are a local community venture and could not continue without the help received from various state bodies and grant schemes. Pobal's mission is to promote social inclusion, reconciliation and equality through integrated social and economic development within communities.

Tulsk Writers Group

We organize a weekly Writers Group which runs every Wednesday morning from 10am - 12noon.

The aim is to provide support, inspiration, advice & networking to established writers & beginners alike. Facilitating these meetings is the centre manager, Lora O’Brien; a non-fiction author and freelance writer who has been published both nationally and internationally.

The group costs just €5 per session, and there is a café on site serving gourmet coffees and home bakes, as well as more substantial fare. All writers group attendees receive a 10% discount on the extensive range of books stocked in the Cruachan Aí Heritage Centre craft and gift shop!

Note to prospective Stallholders and Event Providers

We realise that any fair is only as good as its Stallholders, so we at Cruachan make a special effort to anticipate and facilitate your needs. Our usual stall fee is just €35, which is in itself significantly lower than the usual €50+ we often see at rural fairs. We also offer regular discounts even on this low rate.

Why? Well, we understand that there is no guarantee as to how many people come through the door, and what they will purchase, on any given day. We are seeking to build up a reputation for quality events and interesting days out, on a very regular basis, so we support our stallholders and those who wish to offer classes, workshops, and special events by NOT simply taking their money and leaving them to sink or swim on the day.

The holistic approach is important to us, as is building quality relationships with our stallholders and other event providers. We will work with you on a deal that best suits all concerned.
