Over the weekend I noticed that my beloved running shoes of 4 years had acquired a puncture and required replacing. As it happens I was down in Cork with Siân on Saturday looking around when the thought dawned on me; whatever happened to those shop local adverts that used to be around when I was a kid? I always purchase my goods locally when possible but I often hear of others who still enjoy the shopping trips to other counties. Whatever happened to the push for supporting local business? Let’s renew the campaign and keep our earnings within the community when possible and when financially feasible. Shop local!!
