Support Local … Online
As Achill is currently (November 2020) in ‘lockdown’ due to COVID-10 and many local businesses forced to close their doors to the public, we’re encouraging people to support those Achill businesses that also trade online. Research shows that every €1 spent in a local shop generates €4 for the local economy. Here’s a guide to Achill businesses that allow you to ‘support local’ from anywhere in the world:
