Congratulations to all involved in this year’s Fairtrade Fortnight on Rathlin. The island is the only Fairtrade Island in Ireland, and this year Rathlin businesses were at the forefront of promoting Fairtrade products, and demonstrating the island community’s year-round commitment to Fairtrade.

On Tuesday 6th March, Rathlin Island’s Fairtrade Group celebrated
Fairtrade Fortnight with an event hosted in the Manor House. There was a
very good turnout from the island with over twenty people attending –
that’s almost a quarter of Rathlin’s whole population! A small group of
volunteers, supported by the Rathlin Development & Community Association
and St Mary’s Primary School, has held Fairtrade Fortnight events for
the past two years now.
