Clonmel Chamber of Commerce is using a poster campaign to highlight that the town will be open for business on St. Patrick’s Day. The campaign was devised in-house and the posters printed and designed locally. It aims to inform consumers that despite Saturday, March 17th being a public holiday, Clonmel is open for business on St. Patrick’s Day.
“We have been speaking with local retailers since early January to ascertain their views on this issue and the vast majority of them have come back to us and told us that they will be opening on the day. While it is a public holiday it is also the day before Mother’s Day, which is traditionally a very busy day in the town” said Chamber CEO, Brian Cleary.
“This year’s parade, with its ‘Dare to Dream - Make it Happen’ theme promises to be something special and we are encouraging people to come to Clonmel early on St. Patrick’s Day and to shop, visit local restaurants and see the parade”, he added.
The Chamber is just one of a number of local groups involved in organising the parade and has been a key player in the management of the day’s events for several decades.
“Ample parking will be available on the day. We have listed all of the traffic issues associated with the day on the news section of our website at ClonmelChamber.com if people want to check them out beforehand”, said Mr. Cleary.
