Top of the morning to you all!! And greetings from sunny (Yes, a lovely, sunny!) Clifden, the capital of Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way!
It really is a beautiful morning here and the whole town is ready for the big day, with green, white & gold bunting up and all the stores and businesses making a little extra affort to celebrate our Patron Saints Day! All the restaurants and hotels have reopened and the town is buzzing. It's so lovely to see all the old & new faces back in town, after a long Winter.
Here in Hehirs, we're still moving bits around teh store but thrilled with our new look and delighted with all your lovely compliments and good wishes.The store in choc-a-block with lovely stock for mens & ladies- lots of gorgeous new ranges for the ladies and Brian's menswear is really fab. Keep an eye on our facebook page "Hehirs Of Clifden" for new deliveries, which seem to be arriving daily.
We had lovely news yesterday, when we heard we had been nominated for TWO Digital Marketing Awards from the tireless gang in Online Marketing In Galway-Best Website & Best Blog.. we are so chuffed about it!! The OMIG are a really hard-working, non profit group that have brought the west of Ireland into a structured, digital marketing network, from supporting small, isolated businesses, like ourselves to organising the first Digital Marketing Conference in Galway last month. Thank you guys for all you do & for keeping us encouraged out here in the wild west. All those retweets make a big difference!
We have more very exciting news that we'll be telling you about this week, but for today, enjoy our lovely parade at 12.30, and maybe take a spin out to Roundstone for their parade afterwards. If you're paraded out after Clifden, our All Blacks Connemara RFC are playing a very important league final against Ballina RFC at 3pm at the Monastery Field- They need all the support they can get so try and get out there and give them a holla!!
Happy St Patrick's Day everybody- stay safe & happy..mx
