Dublin City Council asks how will you remember 1916?

Posted on: March 9th, 2016 by admin No Comments


In the build up to the Easter Rising Centenary, Dublin City Council (DCC) is inviting Dubliners and visitors alike to engage with the 1916 Rising commemorations programme planned for the city.

To highlight the many planned events that will take place over the year, DCC are currently running an OOH campaign asking passers-by how they will remember 1916.

Planned by MediaVest and PML, the DCC campaign is running on 6 Sheets, Commuter Squares, Commuter Points and Supersides. The OOH creative by Source Design encourages people to visit for more information on 1916 commemorations as well as the hashtag #Dublin1916, which people can use on social media to follow the variety of planned events that will take place throughout the year to mark this pivotal event in Dublin and Ireland’s history.

Recent research conducted by PML Group and Ipsos MRBI revealed that 63% of Dubliners are likely to attend one of more of the commemorative events of the 1916 Rising. For more information on this research please contact

Ms Green is back! M&M’s popular character returned to Out of Home in time for St Patrick’s Day and encouraged passers-by to send her a kiss to be in with a chance to go to LA for the 4th of July.

MediaVest and PML worked on M&M’s OOH campaign, with planning by Mediacom and creative from Irish International. The promotion ran on 48 Sheets, 6 Sheets, Green Screen and dPods, as well as extensive Luas advertising that included Tram Sides, a Single Wrap and Columns. M&M’s Luas advertising ran on the Green Line which ideally suited the character of Ms Green, as well as the day the campaign is celebrating, St Patrick’s Day.

The competition element of the campaign ran across Facebook and Twitter. Using the hashtag #KissMeImIrish, people were encouraged to tweet or post Ms Green a kiss to enter to win a trip to LA.
