It is the time of year that many children are getting ready to celebrate their First Communion or Confirmation.
It’s a very special time for both children and parents and to help you get organised and take some of the stress away, we are delighted to provide you with a lists of shops and suppliers around Offaly.
The following is a list of local shops where dresses, outfits for boys, shoes and accessories may be obtained.
- My Fair Lady – Communion dresses and occasion wear
- G & T Drapery – Communion dresses
- Jen Joe for Kids – Communion dresses and boys outfits.
- Hip Hop – Dresses
- Junior Junction – Dresses and boys outfits.
People generally buy clothes early and leave shoes until later. If you have bought the clothes early check that these fit closer to the time. You would not want any surprises!
If you decide to go out for a meal afterwards most of the local hotels are taking bookings for Communions and Confirmations.

Maria’s Little Wrappers will supply specially made occasion favours for the day.
If you have invited all the extended family and half the neighbourhood and you need some entertainment we have a list of the following:
You will probably want to take some of your own photos, check that you have batteries and that your camera is charged and don’t leave this to the last minute! You may also wish to have a professional photographer and we have a list here.
Above all enjoy the day!
