“We are taking a unique approach to the Halloween market this year, ” said Ronan O’Brien, ceo of “The idea is quite simple, we want to get more people into Halloween so they decorate their houses more, throw more parties and make Halloween a week-long festival. The festival started in Ireland, so it’s no big surprise that Ireland should be the home of Halloween!”

Ronan continued:”I think it’s important as the market leader in Ireland to think bigger, rather than trying to squeeze a few more points of market share in a market we already dominate. So instead we are creating the demand, showing people why Halloween is our favourite season, nudging them into taking action and developing real relationships with our customers to enhance their Halloween experience.”

Halloween fans across the UK can listen to the station here, from Wednesday 23 October. More info can be found at
