A door closes…

URRU It was a sad day in work today as URRU Mallow closed its doors after just over two years of trading.

Although I’ve only been there part-time – initially I worked a four day week, recently I’ve been down to three days – it’s played a big part in my life for the last twelve months. I’m really going to miss the easy access to such a great range of Irish artisan products, our ever-entertaining customers, my fantastic colleagues and inspirational boss.

Fortunately the original URRU in Bandon is still thriving – I’m going to have to start taking myself down there to continue getting my fix of quality coffee…
