Special Mountrath Christmas Community Event



Mountrath announce their very special Christmas event; “A Taste of a Cosy Christmas” on Sunday December 4th in aid of the Cuisle Centre Portlaoise.


A Taste of Cosy Christmas  was a brain storming idea over a cosy chat among friends Sinead Hanlon owner of Cost Cafe and Marguerite Sheeran of Timber Manufacture CJ Sheerans . Both Ladies want to introduce Christmas to Mountrath with warmth and good  spirit  while helping out The Cuisle Cancer Support Centre as they both had relatives in recent past with the dreaded illness .


So lots of calls and contacts later with the help of our local sponsors   (Listed below) The Taste Of Cosy Christmas is a reality in Mountrath Square  4th Dec / 4pm till 9pm . Mince pies and mulled wine on arrival.


Santa Clause himself will be making a very special visit from the North Pole with some of his very best elves to speak to all the good boys and girls in Mountrath and culinary wizard, Michelin Star head chef from the recently crowned, number one top hotel in the world Ballyfin Demesne, Chef Sam Moody will give a demonstration of culinary delights for your festive feasts.


Local music man Damien Bowe from the award winning band The  Vows will be belting out all our favourite festive tunes and guests will be treated to carols sung by The Cosy Cafe Choir and Mountrath Community School Choir. The very talented Imelda from Local Flower Shop will be demonstrating how to create the perfect Christmas wreath


25 Stalls consisting of local artesian delights , crafts ,wood turning with an aroma of cinnamon , spices and a taste of festive cheer for everyone it will truly be a treat to the taste buds .


“WE want it to be a joyful happy event so we are incorporating a Christmas Jumper Competition with a great hamper prize kindly supplied by Carrolls Costcutters  this surely will bring some colour to the square on the night . There are also door prizes on the evening” says committee member and brains behind the event, Sinead Hanlon.


The Kids will enjoy meeting Santa and his elves along with face painting and a cup cake demo with Danielle from Cosy Cafe Bakery . There will also be some very special guests from Disney which we can’t reveal but let’s just say we think they’ll be freezing!


For the sweet toothed guests there will be an array of candy floss, crepes , waffles , and yummy toasted marshmallows to indulge in at the square in Mountrath whilst adults can enjoy wine tasting from Costcutters and dive into all the delicious treats on offer .


A Taste of a Cosy Christmas hopes to raise awareness and raise much needed funds for The Cuisle Centre and are looking forward to seeing you all on the 4th December .
