Supporting independent, locally owned businesses throughout Ireland
Buy Local is a campaign to support independent, locally owned businesses throughout all Irish communities.
By sourcing and purchasing more local goods and services within our community, we sustain our home and provide opportunity and success for those around us.
Over the next few weeks on Newstalk we will be looking at how a variety of local businesses operate around Ireland.
