Thank Murtaghs it’s Friday…

Murtaghs hardware 27 years in Sandymount run their ‘Fiver Friday’ offer on the first Friday of every month. Five per cent of the day’s takings are donated to charities and local causes, based on the idea championed by The Joe Duffy Show. There is also a range of promotional items reduced to five euros.

“If people feel they are getting value and contributing to a charity then everyone wins,” Manager Declan McDonnell told NewsFour. “It works both ways, at the end of the day people want to get good value.”

In the last six months beneficiaries have included Star Of The Sea Primary School, the ISPCC, Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind and this month, St. Mathew’s School.

You can enter a free monthly raffle in conjunction with the offer by agreeing to give your mobile number and email in store. With prizes like a free Christmas tree delivered to your home, it’s well worth getting involved.
