We’re all getting set for the festive season and what a Christmas it is set to be as we revert to the 2019 experience of a normal December.

Still hard to believe we were in the midst of regulations a mere 12 months ago. 

Despite a return to what one might consider normal trading and festive conditions, juggling annual family demands on time and budget aren’t the only things to consider.

Violence against women is unacceptable and this festive season Ballywire is supporting a campaign to highlight the work of Amber Women’s Refuge in Kilkenny.

Headed up by Lisa Morris, the charity was the beneficiary of a fundraising night at Kilkenny’s Pembroke Hotel owned by Tipperary’s John Ryan.

Organised by the Slievenamon Association, a video created by Ballywire showcasing their work was premiered at the event and this production is now reminding people of their great work and the need to support them this festive season and throughout the year.

Ballywire has created a video for Amber Womens Refuge in Kilkenny and is supporting them this festive season.

Thanks to Today FM’s Paula McSweeney and fellow Kilkenny native, RTE broadcaster Evanne Ní Chuileann for literally voicing their support for the campaign by volunteering their services to help tell the Amber story.

Also thanks to producer Sarah Ntabadde for her work in editing the piece. Have the best Christmas you can.

Here is the video.
