College St

Carlow, Carlow

To mark Carlow 800 we are holding a networking event in the fabulous Carlow County Museum in College Street.

The theme of the event is Carlow's proud industrial past focusing on the key businesses that were located around the Castle and the River Barrow.

Corcorans Mineral Waters, Governeys Boot Factory and of course Irish Sugar are all synonymous with Carlow and we are fortunate that there are many artefacts on display in the Museum to celebrate that proud tradition.

Welcome to our Newest Members!
