Creeslough’s new shop is set to open its doors to the local community this afternoon.
The village which found itself in tragic circumstances after the deaths of ten local people following the October 7th explosion has been without a shop since.
A temporary shop made from a container did provide vital goods such as milk, bread and other items which were donated through many of the major stores.
However, the Lafferty family who operated the Applegreen Service Station at the centre of the tragedy have worked hard to rebuild a shopping outlet for local people.
That shop, which is located adjacent to St Michael’s Church, is due to open this afternoon at 3pm.
The Lafferty family recently issued a post on social media thanking everyone for their support at this time.
