RGDATA’s new Christmas social media campaign has been designed to encourage people to shop local, buy Irish and invest in their local community.

“We want to emphasise that by shopping in your local family owned store you are investing in the beating heart of your community,” says RGDATA director general Tara Buckley.

The short animation is ideal to share on your store’s Facebook or Twitter page, culminating in the central message: “Buy Irish in a family-owned Irish shop at Christmas and everyday, to keep the beating heart of your community alive.”

On the subject of supporting the independent retailers which form the backbone of Ireland’s towns and communities, Tara Buckley has also taken part in the ‘Putting Town Centres First’ Heritage Council podcast series, which you can listen to here.

In the second episode of the series which examines the keys issues facing historic town centres, particularly following the impact of Covid-19, Tara Buckley speaks about why RGDATA supports a collaborative approach to town centre regeneration and the unique role played by independent grocery/convenience shops in our historic towns.

The Heritage Council’s podcast series highlights the overwhelming need for innovative and collaborative responses and solutions. The new podcast series is part of the innovative Collaborative Town Centre Health Check Programme (CTCHC).
