Emer O’Neill steps out with Pride this Bank Holiday at the Plaza

The Plaza Market at Greystones Marina returned for the June Bank Holiday after almost a 4 year hiatus.

With almost 40 stalls, the market was buzzing with colour, creativity and picture postcard June Bank Holiday weather. At the centre of the activity, Wicklow Pride Festival crew brought sunshine and rainbows by the bucket load and there were certainly enough for everyone!
