duration of the Market.
To facilitate with the build and running of the market can we advise you park your vehicle at an alternative location than the ones mentioned above from Saturday evening, or move your car to an alternative location before 7am on Sunday morning.
This year our market features an array of various stalls from Market Square to the Lower Square. We will have a
Covid Officer and private security to ensure a safe and enjoyable day for all.
Santa makes a special appearance this Friday night 26th Nov on The Downtown Portlaoise Facebook page at 9pm to virtually switch on our fabulous lights! Please keep an eye on our social media page this week and we would
appreciate if you could share our posts.
Also on the day Alison Browne, President of Laois Chamber of Commerce and Downtown member will be selling the
newly launched “Love Laois 2022 Calendar” outside Gerry Brownes Jewellers on Main Street. This is a beautifully
produced calendar, featuring images of various scenic spots in Laois. All proceeds from the sale of this calendar are
going directly to SOSAD Ireland Laois Branch. If any of our members would like to support by selling these calendars in their own premises please get in touch by return email.
Finally we are delighted to once again host our wonderful Christmas Market and we hope you all enjoy the day and
the festive atmosphere around town.
We wish you a prosperous, happy and safe Christmas!
