Business is Essential for the Economy


With Seachtain na Gaeilge just around the corner, why not promote the Irish language through your business?

Add value and attract customers by introducing the Irish language to your business – it’s cost-effective, easily accessible, and adds a bit ‘grá’ to your brand.

Promoting the language can create a distinctive image for your business and signal a commitment to quality and excellence.

A simple way to promote the Irish language is through your signage, or ‘comharthaíocht’. The first point of visual contact for your business plays a huge role in attracting customers, especially those that are Irish speakers.

You could share your message bilingually with a cúpla focal -  for example, “Joe Bloggs – Siopa Leabhar”. This could be incorporated into your main business signage, window decal or even posters.

Through the use of the Kildare County Council Shop Front Improvement, Accessibility and Age-Friendly Grant Scheme, we are here to support the improvement of the appearance of shop fronts or commercial properties in the high street. The grant can support 50% of eligible costs up to a maximum grant of €5,000.

This funding is being provided in recognition of the fact that a building’s façade makes a big impact in our town centres.

So why not have a look at joining the Irish conversation? Click here to apply for the Shopfront Improvement Grant.
