“Christmas is coming. Now is the time to find the perfect gifts for the special people in your life. And you can make that gift extra special by shopping local.”
So said Cathaoirleach of Louth County Council, Cllr. Pio Smith, this week as he invited everybody to Look for Louth this Christmas.
“We’ve got so many incredible small businesses, across the county, creating and producing wonderful gifts. Just take a look around your local town or village to see what’s on offer. You’ll be delighted by the amazing selection.”
“And you’ll feel good when you Look for Louth, knowing that you’re keeping small businesses trading and local people employed. Think about it, local businesses employ your friends, your neighbours, your cousins, your brothers, sisters, parents, and wider community.

"It really makes a difference when you choose to shop local” explains Thomas McEvoy, Louth County Council’s Head of Enterprise.
Thomas explains “Look For Louth encourages everyone to add the word “Louth” or the name of your local town or village to your online search.
"This helps you to find out whether the gift or product you’re looking for is available locally before ordering from abroad. Once you’ve found the gift you’re looking for you can shop in person or order it online.”
Riona McCoy of Local Enterprise Office Louth continues “Our role at the Local Enterprise Office Louth is to support the development of small businesses across the county.
"That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to visit www.localenterprise.ie/Louth to start your Christmas shopping. You’ll find a huge selection of local shops, gifts, crafts, home, garden, food, fashion and so much more, all of whom are local.”
Riona concludes, “And don’t miss the chance to win a €250 Shop Local voucher in our #LookforLouth competition, launching on 3rd December. Follow Local Enterprise Office Louth on social media for more information!”
