Fighting back: Well-known Kilkenny businesses benefit from new digital funding

Two county Kilkenny retailers have been awarded funding to strengthen their online visibility and offerings, which enables them to reach a wider customer base.


Petmania Ltd and Archers Street Investment Ltd and both were approved for funding through the Covid-19 Online Retail Scheme, which is administered by Enterprise Ireland. 


The funding is part of phase one of the scheme, which will see the successful applicants receive funding ranging from €16,000 to €40,000 to assist their business. The average grant value is €35,500.


The second phase of the €6.5 million scheme will be announced by Enterprise Ireland in the coming weeks and is set to benefit more than 180 businesses.


Local Fine Gael TD John Paul Phelan said he ie “delighted” Kilkenny businesses are among the first to benefit from the scheme.


“There is no doubt that the Covid-19 pandemic has been difficult for businesses in Kilkenny,” Deputy Phelan said, “but they have stepped up to the plate in coming up with dynamic and innovative ways of trading while adhering to public health protocols.


 “This particular scheme was introduced back in April to assist indigenous Irish retailers to better establish themselves online – which was essential to get them through the crisis and will be even more important in helping them to trade going forward.


“I welcome funding for the two retailers in Kilkenny, so that they can be more competitive, sustain jobs in Kilkenny and subsequently scale their businesses in international markets,” Deputy Phelan added.

    Diabetes breakthrough
    I have been diagnosed with diabetes for 7 years and I have been on insulin for a very long time which is not a total cure for diabetes. I came across a patients testimony who was cured from virginal infection with doctor Nelson herbal medicine on a health blogger page when searching the internet one faithful day including the doctor’s email address. I contacted the herbal specialist and promised Doctor Nelson Saliu that if he heals me of diabetes , I will testify to his good work and after much discussion he sent the herbal medicine to me through delivery company which I received 3 days later and with the herbal specialist prescription, I drank the herbal medicine for 21 days without insulin and today thanks to Almighty God I am cured from diabetes. I have also waited for two month to be very sure I was completely cured before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still negative, with no trace on my blood so I decided its time I recommend him to anyone suffering from Diabetes. Contact Doctor Nelson and be cured through his mail:
