Mission statement

Retail Ireland, in everything it does, supports and protects the social and economic importance of the Irish retail industry. All our communications, media campaigns and advocacy strategies are designed to raise the profile of the industry and to promote the enormous role played by retail in Ireland's employment, investment and prosperity.

Our public affairs and representation activities are focussed on articulating, protecting and advancing retail's position, influencing proposals which impact upon our members' interests and engaging with Government and key decision makers to ensure that the retail industry is properly considered when new laws and regulations are debated.

As Ireland's domestic economy begins to recover after years of devastating recession, our focus is firmly on the need to protect existing jobs in the sector, create additional employment and boost State revenues generated by retail sales.
