Irish Examiner Defines GAA Lingo
With the GAA season well under way, the Irish Examiner has launched a region-specific campaign to promote its coverage of the championship.
A series of Bus Shelters, Adshel and Super Rears located across the Munster region brought some meaning to GAA lingo, explaining what the Long Grass, Savage Hunger and Flying in Training actually means, as they define the games that define the summer.
A special in Kent Station also displays the creatives side by side for unmissable impact.

Don’t Worry, be with Irish Life
Irish Life launched a major Outdoor campaign focused on it’s family protect scheme. The OOH creative presented ‘worries’ that all Irish parents can relate to; will that wash off?, getting a nice photo of the kids, being late for crèche or simply not having enough time to get a morning coffee. But life assurance is one less thing to worry about as the campaign encouraged potential consumers to keep their families protected.
Research from Irish Life (2016) showed that 45% of parents have no life insurance or mortgage protection. The number of parents covered for illness or income protection is only 18% and 14% respectively.
Source out of home was responsible for the campaign’s OOH placement. The extensive campaign ran on 48 Sheets, Metropoles, Commuter Points and Squares, Bus Shelters and Super Rears. A transit special in Pearse Street Station was commissioned to capture the desirable commuter audience. Irish life took its OOH targeting even further by advertising in Maternity Hospitals and GP waiting rooms.

Lidl’s Christmas Wrapping
With Halloween now a distant orange-tinged memory and the bright lights of Christmas already on the horizon, Lidl launched its festive campaign.
The centrepiece of the campaign is a wrapped Luas tram in Dublin city. This consists of a full wrap of an entire tram along with an internal domination, incorporating the ceiling, straplines and portrait panels inside the Luas tram.
The striking red coloured livery will be visible on the red line right up until Christmas. Luas Columns here also a feature of the campaign in cycle 23, along with Bus Shelter 6 Sheets.
For the Luas interior, Lidl focused on its deluxe range of products with some Christmas favourites featured. A cracker of a promotion was displayed on the ceiling of the Luas that let commuters know its annual Christmas trolley dash is back, giving Luas commuters the chance to win their Christmas shopping by entering in store.
Luas is of course a hugely popular mode of commuting in the run-up to Christmas among shoppers, workers and revellers. In November and December 2016, the Luas red line carried almost 3.6 million passengers.
For its ‘Share More this Christmas’ campaign, the call to action was a huge feature in the copy to drive conversion with dates and prices outlined while also encouraging people to enter into the trolley dash in stores.
Robert Sheehan, Media Manager commenting on the campaign said;
“The Luas Wrap is one of the most sought after pieces of Outdoor advertising in the country and at Lidl we are delighted to have it as part of our Christmas campaign for 2017. A lot of work has gone into the artwork for this internally and we are delighted with how it has turned out. The theme for Christmas 2017 for Lidl is to get people to Share More This Christmas. Thousands of commuters share their journey to work on a daily basis and this made the Luas Wrap a perfect fit to help bring this to life. We hope that it brings an extra bit of Christmas spirit to commuters on their travels over the festive period”
Source out of home teamed up with Mediaworks to bring the campaign to the streets while Lidl’s creative team produced the designs.

AIB is backing you doing you, as they are offering personal loans from €1,000 all approved within 3 hours. The bank’s central theme of the campaign plays on the concept of the waiting game and putting off something that thing you would love to do. A clever tie-in with the time led marketing message of AIB’s loans.
Source out of home worked with Starcom on the Outdoor planning with creative by Rothco. The campaign has taken over Pearse street station with a total station domination incorporating branded station ticket barriers and commuter dPods.
So why wait…whatever you’re planning for – a new car, home improvements, that away match you promised- you can turn your plans into a reality… pretty quickly too!

Lidl Introduces #LidlTrolleyCam Campaign
Every trolley tells a hundred stories and Lidl is host to them all.
Supermarkets are packed full of family dynamics, cranky teens, demanding children, debate and rows over price and wafer thin vs regular ham. Now, the nation’s obsessions and habits are revealed in Lidl’s new ad campaign by Chemistry, which follows Irish couples, siblings and families around as they carefully – and not so carefully – negotiate their way through the weekly shop.
Chemistry’s latest ad campaign ’TrolleyCam’ allows viewers to have a nose into people’s shopping habits, choices, and of course, the rows that ensue when opinions differ over what to buy, how much to spend, and if, indeed, newborn babies really go through 70 nappies a week.
The innovative new ad campaign follows six real families around Lidl as they do their weekly shop – from a young couple expecting their first child to a mother with her two adult sons.
The filming took place in four stores across Ireland, where the campaign is running across TV, online, print, radio, digital, and Out of Home platforms, planned by Mediaworks and Source out of home.
