New local gift card campaign launched for Sligo

People are being urged to shop local in the lead up to Christmas.

A new gift card campaign has been launched by Sligo Chamber of Commerce, Sligo County Council and TY students from the Mercy College.

The localised gift cards can be used in over 100 shops in Sligo and the surrounding areas.

Faílenn McLoughlin, a TY student from the Mercy College says the gift cards are available in a number of retailers.
