“I joined Carraig Donn as a Visual Merchandiser in 2012. I went on to manage the Gift Department in Westport and recently became Store Manager for Carraig Donn’s newest store in Castlebar. What I love most about my job is when a customer is satisfied. Whether it’s a piece of clothing that makes them feel great, or a gift for someone that makes them smile, I love to see a happy customer! I also love to motivate and develop new staff and I feel there is a great opportunity for progression within Carraig Donn if you love what you do and work hard.”

There are lots of things I love about my job but most of all I enjoy working alongside a motivated team with a strong work ethic who are always there when you need a hand."
