Co Carlow Chamber would like to invite you to a meeting to discuss Retailing in Carlow Town. The meeting will take place in the Leinster Room, Talbot Hotel on Thursday May 30th starting at 7pm.

These are unprecedented times for retailers, as a stroll down our main streets will confirm. Many retailers find themselves in a precarious and lonely place. There is an urgent need for all of us to work together and this meeting can be a starting point. Taking a back seat is an option few of us can afford to take.

Our Agenda is simple:

Where are we now?

Where are we going?

How are we going to get there?

Are you willing to get involved?

We ask you to consider these four simple questions in advance of the meeting; come with an open mind and please contribute as we need to hear your views.

An initial steering Committee has been put in place consisting of John Brophy, Joe Tully, Eoin Kehoe, Michael Doyle, Sean Swan, PJ Hickson and Turlough O Brien.

Looking forward to seeing you in the Talbot,
