Introducing the new Etsy Ireland Committee

The second half of 2010 has started, and a new committee has taken up the mantle of the old one. The Crafty Ireland Team has expanded considerably - we're now over 180 members strong - and so has the work. Therefore, there are now a lot more of us in the committee.

A big thank you goes out to the old committee. Wow, what can I say about the old committee that hasn't been said before??? They were amazing, hard-working, successful and dedicated! Thank you Ruth and Alex, and it's great to know that you are still active in the new committee to keep up the good work!!!
