Síoraí Clothing & Accessories opens in Carndonagh 27.10.23

A clothing and accessories store with a difference opens its doors on Bridge Street, Carndonagh this Saturday. Síoraí Clothing & Accessories seeks to integrate the circular economy into the local community by encouraging people to shop for fashionable clothing more sustainably. The store is inviting donations of quality pre-loved clothing and accessories for women, men, and children.

Lorraine Carey, Circular Economy Hub Lead at Spraoi agus Spórt, said: “Síoraí was chosen as a name for the initiative because it means continual, unceasing, constant. The circular economy aims to reduce waste by reusing, repairing, and recycling as much as possible, for as long as possible. We have applied this key principle to Síoraí Clothing & Accessories by attempting to extend the life span of quality clothing."
Síoraí Clothing & Accessories opens this Saturday in Carndonagh
Part of the award-winning Spraoi agus Spórt social enterprise, Síoraí replaces Fadó vintage shop that has operated from the Bridge Street premises for over seven years. Similarly, all proceeds from sales will be used to provide activities and services that help children and young people in the community reach their full potential. However, the new space has been made bigger and more accessible to enable disability work placements. The enlarged space will also facilitate transition year work placements and Gasice volunteer placements.

Síoraí Clothing will be open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm. Donations to Síoraí of quality pre-loved clothing and accessories for women, men and children can be left in the shop or in Spraoi agus Spórt.
