‘Unbelievable Response’ To Ennis Hotel’s Thank You To Health Workers On The Frontline

HUNDREDS of frontline healthworkers are set to enjoy a night’s stay in Ennis following an “unbelievable response” to a local hotel’s ‘thank you’ to those leading the fight against Covid-19.
Hotel Woodstock is one of five hotels as part of the Choice Hotel Group to donate a total of 1,800 free overnight stays to HSE healthcare workers in the frontline. Sean Lally owner / director of Hotel Woodstock explains that the Ennis hotel is providing approximately 360 rooms to the effort “to express our deep gratitude”.
Just days after the hotel group made the announcement, the hotels were fully subscribed with Mr Lally saying “there has been an unbelievable response”.
“There has been a huge reaction to this, we’ve had hundreds and hundreds of shares across social media. This is just a small way for us to give something back to those on the frontline. What they are doing for us can never fully be repaid, this is just a small gesture. We are very much in what could be described as a war-like situation and what they are doing is unbelievable. We have huge respect for those working in the HSE, the Government and what they are doing to get us through it, and all of the people of Ireland. Hopefully this will be over soon.
The approximate value of all of these breaks across the hotel group to the company is in excess of €250,000. Andy O’Neill, CEO of Choice Hotel Group said, “We want to express our deep gratitude to those on the frontline bravely working on our behalf, and by giving our frontline workers a well deserved break to look forward to when all this is over, is our way of saying thank you.”
“We are forever grateful for the work they are doing for our family, friends, colleagues and of course our country, and we will be forever proud as a country.  They are truly amazing people.”
