Description: Newbridge OOOOBY is the newest OOOOBY group in Ireland, the first one starting in Wicklow in association with Carraig Dulra. Standing for ‘Out of Our Own Back Yard’ the OOOOBY group is based on the Food Co-op ideals of sourcing local producers and suppliers of local, tasty, affordable and if possible, organic food.

At the moment, we’re getting whole food from Simply Wild whole food suppliers based in Toughers Business Park, Simply Wild prioritises Irish and organic produce, so we’ve been enjoying tasty delights such as coffee roasted in Cork, and homemade Irish chocolate. We also get local Kildare honey and Kildare raised organic chickens, and we’re in the middle of sourcing local vegetables and fruit, possibly through a local vegetable box scheme.

If you’re interested in getting involved in the group, and buying your food locally, you can contact us via email at or phone our chairman Mairtín Lane on 087 4169582.

Current Activities: We meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month, in The Bridge CDP, on Charlotte St, Newbridge at 8pm.
