ENNIS Street Radio is set to return, bringing Christmas cheer to the county capital. The Ennis Chamber initiative, run in conjunction with Ger Sweeney with the support of Ennis Town Council, will run from this Saturday to Monday, December 24 bringing the message of shopping local this Christmas.
Ennis Street Radio, which is a non-commercial temporary broadcast on the streets, will air Christmas and upbeat music as well as promoting loads of great giveaways for the customers and shoppers of Ennis during the Christmas shopping period, with thousands of euros worth of gifts and vouchers from Ennis businesses as prizes during its 80 hours of broadcasting. Ennis Street Radio will broadcast from a mobile unit located in the town centre, thanks to Vanderlust Campervan and motor home hire, Doora Industrial Estate. Assistance for the project has also been received from IMRO, the music rights organisation. As an added feature this year, Ennis Street Radio will also be available on the web at www.gersweeney.net so anyone in the world can log on and hear what the Christmas atmosphere is like in Ennis.
The local authority’s pedestrianisation of O’Connell Street beginning this Saturday and continuing on Saturday, December 22, Sunday December 23, and Monday December 24, will be promoted through Ennis Street Radio. The free parking for customers in Ennis Town Council public car parks every day in December from 9am to 12pm and free all-day parking in Cloughleigh Car Park will also be promoted as an incentive to shoppers and as a way of giving back to the customers who support businesses and the local authority by shopping local.
Ennis Chamber would like to invite any business interested in promoting their business through the giveaways on Ennis Street Radio to contact Deirdre or Patricia at Ennis Chamber on 065 684 2988 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ennis Town Council is also promoting the town as a place to shop through a parking incentive for customers over Christmas, which includes free parking before 12pm every day until January. Ultimately, the impression is of a unique shopping experience in an easy to access town with atmospheric streets and lanes, coupled with friendly businesses and excellent customer service – you don’t know who you might meet or what you might win.
