Fiver Friday is Liveline's RTÉ Radio 1 campaign to help support local businesses and Joe Duffy has launched a special festive edition.

Speaking to RTÉ TEN, he said: "It's the simplest idea in the world, spend an extra €5 locally, December 6 is the day all around the country in shops, services, hotels, pubs, butchers, bakers, candlestick makers are all offering special deals for a €5."

He added: "My local set of shops in Clontarf has a butchers, bakers, a brilliant café, brilliant florist, a great chemist – it has everything you'd ever need.

"All of them are doing special deals coming up to Christmas for the festive Fiver Friday on December 6."
