Mullingar Chamber have had to announce the cancellation of the Mullingar Christmas market for 2021.

In a statement today, Mullingar Chamber expressed disappointment, and said: “The WinterFest team have worked extensively with the support of Westmeath County Council and the Mount Street retailers to try to hold the market this year – however, with the continuing uncertainty around Covid-19 and the community transmission rates at present, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this event in the interest of public safety.”

The spokesperson said they are grateful to the suppliers and traders who have been very understanding in relation to this unfortunate decision, and look forward to 2022, when they hope they will be in a different public health environment.
