Champion Green

10 days ago, we, together with Kilkenny Group, Visa, Retail Excellence and Chambers Ireland, launched a new shop local initiative called Champion Green. Champion Green aims to encourage the public to shop locally in order to help businesses in the community bounce back from the impact of Covid-19.


The public awareness and advertising campaign provides a digital hub of resources for businesses and service-providers to show that they are locally owned or employ locally, and to call out products and brands designed or made in Ireland.
