Out With is our new online series that delves into the Outdoor lives of some of the country’s best known media and marketing professionals. This month, we hear from Mediaworks’ Digital Director, Emer Lawn.

1. Favourite thing to do outdoors

Enjoying the sunshine, on one of our many beautiful Irish beaches.

2. Favourite place to shop – Shopping Centre/City Centre.

Kilkenny City Centre, a trip down town in and out of the shops is a must do. There’s always some hidden gems to be found.

3. Favourite location for a weekend walk

While I’m not an avid fan of the aimless walk, I do fancy a trip in the Wicklow Mountains.

4. Favourite pub for a cosy drink

Cleere’s Bar, Kilkenny.

5. Favourite park to visit

Phoenix Park is spectacular, isn’t it?

6.  Your Hidden Gem

The Hole in the Wall in Kilkenny comes to mind. What more could you want than a sing song in a historic location, led via flip charts for all to join in.

7. Favourite roadtrip to take 

Up home to Donegal, on any route – whether taking the Sligo road with Benbulbin scenery, or the road along the many fine lakes of Fermanagh.

8. Favourite OOH site/location

The corner of Lower Grand Canal Street and Macken Street. I’ve spent a lot of time over the years working and living in the neighbourhood passing by it; and always take a moment to see the campaigns up close and personal. Many a brilliant campaign has featured there, I reckon!

9.  Favourite sports venue

Croke Park, hands down. #UpDonegal

10. Favourite Irish beach

Rossnowlagh, Co. Donegal. It’s beautiful…whatever the weather!

11.  Favourite location for some inspiration

Looking out the window on a sunny day on the train, believe it or not.

12. Favourite mode of transport 

Well, the train of course.

13. All-time favourite OOH campaign

Lidl’s #SeriousSupport campaign comes to mind for the LGFA (Ladies Gaelic Football Association). An impactful OOH campaign with a powerful purpose. 😊
