Promote the county better

Laois County Council were told they need to do more to promote the county and what they were doing.

“There is an onus on the council to let a lot more people know what we’re doing,” Cllr Jerry Lodge said.

“We’ve made a huge investment in this county, there is a huge number of activites going on and I’d like a lot more people to be made aware of that.”

He suggested that a half page brochure on the county should be sent home with every school child in the county.

Cllr Mary Sweeney agreed: “We need to market ourselves better. Individuals sections of the council do a good job, but as a body we need to be promoting what we do.”

County Manager, Peter Carey agreed with the comments on having a stronger marketing approach.

“We have the website and we engage in social media, but I would like to see more in the way of education and informing young people about local government,” he said.
