THE Mar­ket House is home to a multi-func­tional re­tail out­let com­pris­ing of a Spar Ex­press store. This his­toric build­ing has served the peo­ple of Iver­agh in many dif­fer­ent for­mats over the years and to­day it hosts a busi­ness com­mit­ted to achiev­ing re­tail ex­cel­lence. Open 364 days a year, Fitzpatrick’s is proud of its com­mit­ment to re­tail in Ca­her­siveen. Fitzpatrick’s also guar­an­tees that its staff have the level of ex­per­tise in their re­spec­tive de­part­ments that of­fers cus­tomers a tai­lor made ser­vice meet­ing their ex­pec­ta­tions. Nine staff mem­bers in­clud­ing the man­ager have a com­bined to­tal of 100 years work­ing with Fitz­patricks. This is a unique achieve­ment, par­tic­u­larly in re­tail, and cer­tainly one that is dif­fer­ent to most of its com­peti­tors.

This is a store that com­bines choice and qual­ity and is a ma­jor as­set to Ca­her­siveen. It also pro­vides em­ploy­ment for 25 peo­ple in the lo­cal­ity. They also spon­sor lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing GAA clubs, row­ing, schools, etc.

Fitz­patricks is very much im­mersed in the com­mu­nity it serves and reg­u­larly or­gan­ises an an­nual soc­cer blitz for the nine na­tional schools in the Iver­agh area. The win­ning school goes for­ward to com­pete for a chance to play at the Aviva Sta­dium. It also runs an an­nual Bingo night for a lo­cal char­ity which raises close to €5,000. Fitz­patricks is a ma­jor part of Iver­agh life.
