My Week: New reason to boogie at the Jetland

“Make Christmas For Everyone”: Celia Holman Lee with Farah O’Sullivan and her grandaughter Erika Lee during the very special ‘Unveiling Weekend’ which took place from Friday December 6 to Sunday De

IN the 1960s The Jetland Ballroom on the Ennis Road was the place to meet. It was one of Ireland's biggest ballrooms where top international acts such as Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison took to the stage, as well as home-grown talent like Brendan Boyer and Limerick’s own Shaun O’Dowd.

Now people have a brand new reason to head to The Jetland with the unveiling of the all new Dunnes Stores, offering an exciting and innovative shopping experience in collaboration with some of the leading Irish names in food, fashion, and homeware, all under one roof and all delivering on the Dunnes Stores promise of better value.

For me and the Holman Lee Agency it was a great opportunity to showcase some of the top Irish designers like Paul Costelloe whose father came from Limerick. Paul, of course, was a great favourite of Princess Diana and designed many of her fashion pieces. His new collection of cashmere knitwear and his jeans are one of the top sellers in the country.

It was also great to meet Sonya Lennon and Brendan Courtney of Lennon and Courtney who are now synonymous with Dunnes Stores thanks to their fashion label. They were also on hand on the day to chat and give advice to customers. You must have a look at Dunnes’ children's wear collection Willow, by Leigh Tucker. Dunnes Stores Jetland is undoubtedly a world-class shopping destination and we are delighted to have this shopping experience in Limerick.
