Yesterday saw the launch of the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland's #MADELOCAL campaign. Keep an eye out for the blue thumbprint in shops, in studios and online. It highlights all the amazing products made here in Ireland by our many makers, designers and crafts people.
I am thrilled to be part of this much needed initiative for our craft & design industry. So while you discover parts of Ireland you never knew existed, while you staycation this year, check out the fantastic products made in these beautiful locations and remember that every time you buy a #madelocal product from a local maker it is estimated that 70% of the money goes straight back into that community.
