Christy Carton

It was with great sadness that MMRA heard of the news of the passing on of Christy Carton in June 2020. For 37 years, from 1980-2017, Christy supplied the residents of Mount Merrion with fresh fruit, vegetables, plants, and flowers from his shop on Deerpark Road.

New Mount Merrion Buy/Sell/Swap/Borrow Group

Local resident Orla Griffin has set up a new Buy/Sell/Swap/Borrow group for Mount Merrion residents on Facebook. The idea is to facilitate locals to buy or sell or swap or borrow stuff – better for the environment and the community as a whole.
