One happy woman has already picked up a €500 Ballincollig shopping blitz after she entered a new competition organised by Ballincollig Business Association that encourages people to shop local.

As part of its Ballincollig, Open for Business campaign, Ballincollig Business Association (BBA) is giving away a €500 Ballincollig shopping blitz to two people who show how they're supporting local businesses.

Yvonne O'Brien has already won the first prize but there’s still one remaining!

To be in with a chance of winning, people are encouraged to share a photo or video of themselves at their favourite Ballincollig shop or business on the BBA Facebook or Instagram pages using the hashtag #ShopBallincollig.

One winner will be selected randomly next Monday.

Lord Mayor of Cork Cllr Joe Kavanagh and his wife Lady Mayoress Stephanie Kavanagh launched the promotion along with Emer Cassidy, Chairperson of Ballincollig Business Association, Cllr Garret Kelleher, Jim O'Leary, manager of Castle West Shopping Centre and Cllr Derry Canty.

At the launch of the promotion, Emer Cassidy, Chairperson of Ballincollig Business Association said: “It's been very encouraging to see the community coming out to support local businesses in the town over recent weeks.

“Shopping local ensures we continue to have a prosperous economy, which is so important for everyone in the community to ensure they have everything they need right on their doorstep. And, it also means businesses can provide local employment.”
