Bravo Outdoor Advertising

Not only did Bravo provide advertising sites for our pre-launch teaser campaign they also helped us out with our big “Mr. World – do you want to see Níos Mó” stunt. Watch episode 1 and 2 and all will be revealed.

 

Iarnród Eireann

Iarnród Eireann are encouraging and helping all of their staff to re-engage with the Irish language through their dealings with you the public. And they were also kind enough to give us a full carriage and some free tickets for punters willing to take on the great Irish Scrabble challenge.

 

Barry’s Tea

Barry’s Tea provided us with a mobile pop up “Siopa Tae” that visited different locations through the campaign, which encouraged you the public to stop, take a breather, have a cuppa, and use your Irish. “Barry’s Tea were thrilled to be involved in Bród, a show that demonstrated that the Irish language is very much alive amongst Ireland’s tea drinkers.”

 

Bank of Ireland

From 9th March Bank Of Ireland will host “Fáilte Fridays” throughout their branch network. This will involve staff engaging with Gaeilge and seeking to engage with customers in the language. “We’re delighted to support Bród (Pride) – a brilliant new initiative that encourages all of us to have a go at using the Gaeilge we have (or believe we don’t have!)”.

 

Truly Irish

Meat suppliers Truly Irish hosted a Street Brunch Party where they give the local community of Mitchelstown the chance to come together, eat a very big breakfast and labhair Gaeilge with each other.

 

Hairy Baby

Hairy Baby make t-shirts, many of which have slogans as Gaeilge. They are living proof that Irish can be cool. Hairy Baby are designing a t-shirt specially for the show – and it will be yours at cost price. Wear it with Bród! Check it out in episode 1.

 

Irish Pride

Watch out for Irish Pride’s new packaging on their Big Toast brand – in support of the campaign they are changing this to “Tósta Mór, it’s a matter of Bród”. And that’s not all – they are also encouraging their drivers to embrace the cúpla focal. And you know that saying, there is no such thing as a free lunch – well keep watching, there just might be.
