Shopping Local is vitally important throughout the year and none more so than at Christmas.

Limerick Chamber and the Mayor of Limerick, Councillor Francis Foley have teamed up to launch the 2022 Limerick Gift Card, and to urge shoppers to visit Limerick’s towns and villages to do their Christmas shopping in the coming weeks.

The Limerick Chamber Gift Card, operated by One4all Gift Cards, is accepted by more than one hundred retailers and businesses.  It is part of a specific effort by the Limerick Chamber to support local businesses and jobs through challenging times and can only be used in stores in Limerick.

Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Councillor Francis Foley said, “Shopping Local is vitally important throughout the year and none more so than at Christmas. We’re urging everyone to shop in person in Limerick for Christmas. Meet your friends, get a bite to eat and make an occasion out of it.  We all missed social contacts in the last two years so why not make memories that you can cherish while simultaneously supporting local jobs and businesses.”

Urging conscious shopping at the launch, Limerick Chamber CEO Dee Ryan said, “Limerick shops need our support this year more than ever, so it is vital that we lock in our spend with local employers instead of anonymous online outlets. I’ll be doing my Christmas gift shopping early and in person over the coming weekends. My budget is done and I’m looking forward to browsing boutiques, sports shops and garden centres to choose the perfect gifts.”

In September Minister Paschal Donohoe increased the amount that employers can give to employees tax-free through gift cards and vouchers, to a maximum of €1,000 per annum.  Limerick Chamber is urging workers to ask their employer for The Limerick Gift Card this year. 

The card can be used in any of the 150 outlets that currently accept One4all gift cards across Limerick city and county, including Brown Thomas, O’Mahony’s bookstore, The Absolute Hotel, Matthew Stephens Jewellers, Hamptons Bar & Grill (city centre) Kimono Boutique and Platform Boutique, (Newcastle West) and Tesco outlets county-wide to name a few.

Cards can be purchased over the counter at local Limerick Post Offices or go HERE
