New 2004 – Fashion Club Boutique

Home » Library » The Athenry Journal » Record

Christina originally from Rhodes, Greece came to visit Ireland in 1997 where she met Alan Rooney and married in 2002.

Athenry was an attractive town for them and as the commute to Galway was short enough, they decided to invest in their first home and move from Galway City. The Athenry community has welcomed Fashion Club and to date has customers from all over Ireland that travel just to find that special outfit.

Fashion Club now employ part time staff and its customer service, colour and style is of the highest standard.

Christina Rooney travels to purchase all her goods from Designers and Companies in Athens and has the opportunity to visit family and friends on the same trip.

The labels you will find in Fashion Club are exclusive to Ireland. The collection ranges from Casuals, Office Wear, Accessories and Hat Hire.

In September 2004 Christina decided to organize a fashion show with the help of Maureen O’HaIloran and invited all the boutiques in Athenry to take part. The proceedings were given to her chosen local Charity – H.C.P.T. (Irish Handicap Children’s Pilgrimage Trust).

The Athenry community and businesses came together and generously supported this event. Now every year Christina Rooney intends to organize a Fashion event for local charities.
