Dundalk on Ice will once again be centre stage of Dundalk’s Frostival programme for Christmas SIRO, Ireland’s largest broadband network renewing its sponsorship of the popular event.

Dundalk on Ice will open on Friday 18 November with the official opening on our main Frostival Day on Saturday 26 November alongside the Christmas Jumper Record Attempt and the switching on of the new Christmas lights. It will remain through to 8 January.

Dundalk Town Centre Manager Martin McElligott confirmed Dundalk on Ice will be a core part of Dundalk’s Christmas Programme, providing a fun element and boosting local trade.

“I’m thrilled that SIRO has once again supported Dundalk on Ice, as last year it proved to be a tremendous alliance between high speed broadband and high speed and energetic skating,” said Martin.

“Dundalk on Ice over the years has grown to become a tremendous asset to Dundalk’s Frostival season. It attracts not only our local community, but also people living outside the town, in some instances a good distance away. For many it has become a part of their Christmas outing calendar.

“In addition, it creates an additional retail boost to town centre businesses with increased footfall and additional revenue.”

Marianne Murphy, Head of Marketing at SIRO said the company enjoyed last year so much they are delighted to sponsor this great initiative again this year.
