This form is now expired. Thank you to all those who have submitted files.

To celebrate the festive season, we’ve teamed up with Kilkenny, the home of Irish craft and design to offer four lucky readers the chance to win a hamper filled with luxurious goods worth over €500.

With 14 stores nationwide, Kilkenny stocks over 32,000 products from 400 leading Irish and international brands across a variety of categories including textiles, jewellery, glassware, art and prints, ceramics, pottery, cosmetics, fragrance, fashion and accessories. With such a large selection of products to choose from, supporting Irish this Christmas has never been easier.

Included in the hamper is a luxurious Foxford Cashmere Herringbone Throw, Waterford Diamond Candle Holders, Caulfield Country Boards as well as indulgent Butlers chocolates.

Take a break from shopping in Kilkenny’s award winning restaurants in the Nassau Street and Shanagarry stores and indulge in one of their famous mince pies. The mince meat takes 4 months to marinate in Hennessy brandy and other premium ingredients before being added to orange zest infused pastry. Each mince pie is filled to the brim with minced meat and is finished with a soft, bouncy frangipane top. Click here for recipe.

In the spirit of Christmas, Kilkenny has set up complimentary gift wrapping stations in stores nationwide with donations going towards The Simon Community in support of their services across the country.
