Join us this Thursday 30th April from 1.00 pm for our first online Chamber Chat.  We talk to Fiona Deegan from LEO Kilkenny and Tim Butler from Kilkenny County Council about the supports that are available for Retail businesses as they plan their re-opening following the Covid-19 pandemic.

We’ll also be joined by Rita Shanahan, from Lorimat Jewellers, who will tell us about her new online service which she has been promoting over the past week (Home Try On Engagement Rings).

President Marion Acreman and CEO John Hurley will also give us an insight into the Chamber’s activities during this period, and how it has been working on behalf of its members.

Please register at so that we can send you the Zoom link before the meeting begins.  There will be an opportunity to ask questions throughout the Chat.

Chamber Update

For the duration of the Covid-19 crisis, Kilkenny Chamber staff will be working from home and will continue to provide our full range of services.



We will continue to lobby on behalf of businesses throughout this challenging time and are scheduled to have regular meetings with the Dept of the Taoiseach as the situation evolves.


Keep up to date with us on our website, or on our social media pages.


We are still working on your behalf and you can contact us on 056 7752767, or at We are thinking of all those businesses who have taken the difficult, but correct, decision to close their doors until further notice, and we look forward to supporting them all when they reopen.

We also encourage everyone to support those businesses which will remain open – in so far as is safe.


Thank you to all those front-line workers who are working hard to keep us all safe and well.
