COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Ireland is well-positioned to detect and respond to cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

The dedicated COVID-19 information hubs aim is to help connect local businesses with customers, share some practical hints, tips, supports and links to help the town and community bounce back.

The hubs can be accessed via:

  1. Covid-19 updates
  2. Shop Local First
  3. Information hub for businesses

Helping Bray businesses bounce back

In order to update local consumers on planned reopenings, we are calling on the local business community to tell us about it and we will do our best to re-share the information via our website and social networks. Local businesses can submit their reopening information using the form here.

Shop local first

As we emerge out of this crisis, Bray Chamber, Bray Municipal District – Wicklow County Council and bray.ie‘s message is simply please: invest in our town, shop local first and let’s have unity in our community.

Let’s work together #Bray and support those close to us, as a community, we can all get through it together.

Bray Air Display will not take place in 2020

It’s a big disappointment to announce that the #BrayAirDisplay 2020, which was originally due to take place on July 25th and 26th, is cancelled.

After very careful consideration, the unprecedented impact of the global #COVID19 pandemic has forced this decision in the interests of the health and safety of spectators, participants and the organising team.

The team will focus their energies on creating a spectacular event for 2021 when they hope to celebrate happier, safer times.

Follow the Bray Air Display on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for all the very latest 2021 event updates.
