THE Thomas Street/Catherine Street traders and retailers in association with Metropolitan District Council Cathaoirleach Cllr Sarah Kiely have launched their Christmas window display competition.

It comes off the back of the council initiative to encourage shoppers to support local businesses. The idea was proposed by Cllr Kiely and  received unanimous support from the traders.
According to Cllr Kiely, people need a gentle reminder that when they need spot prizes or sponsorship for their clubs , schools or charities, it is the local traders who support them.  They employ local people and keep the city centre vibrant.

This year we all need a lift and what better way to achieve that than to promote a bit of healthy competition among them.
The competition will be open to all traders in the city centre for a trophy sponsored by Cllr Sarah Kiely. The judge will be Richard Lynch of  ‘I love Limerick’ and he will be out walking the beautifully lit streets with Eva Clark of Tony Clarke’s bookshop

The winner will be announced on social media on Christmas Eve so be sure to check out the local traders Facebook and instagram pages.
