Are you feeling creative?

Fancy a years worth of coffee and cake?

Could you think of a great name for The Dock’s Café Bar?


The Dock’s Café Bar will reopen on 2nd February and we would like a new name to celebrate.

With the well known faces of Carrick on Shannon’s own Davy Davis and Andy Neenan at the helm, The Dock Café Bar is the perfect spot to relax with a specialty coffee and some delicious home made cake, catch up with friends for a drink at a gig or browse its selection of books after a wander through the galleries.

Aswell as that warm fuzzy feeling of pride to see your chosen name above the door you will also receive a free coffee and cake every week for a whole year!

Post your answers through to Michelle Dillon, The Dock, St Georges Terrace, Carrick on Shannon, Co Leitrim.

Email them to mdillon (at) leitrimcoco (dot) ie

You can also tweet your answers to us or comment on our facebook page if you wish!

Closing date is 11.59pm, 21st January 2010.

Good Luck!
