Pullough Community Shop
Address: Summers Stretch, Pullough, Co. Offaly
Pullough Shop developed in response to local rural decline. When the last shop closed there was no central space anymore for people to casually meet in the village. A group came together to see if they could combat this change in environment and opened a shop run by local volunteers in June 2017. While operating as a shop the space has now become a hub for community activity with seasonal events being run at Easter, Christmas and Summer. The side room in the shop has become multifunctional with a primary focus on encouraging youth activities. A youth group developed from this space and became so big that it moved to the local community centre. Ancillary facilities like purchasing stamps and an ATM machine are also available through the shop.
