My name is Michelle Mangan and I work on the digital marketing for Killarney Hotels. I have put together this infographic which I have attached, called Happy Halloween! Oiche Shamhna in Ireland 2014.

It is a round-up of what is on offer this Halloween from the top kid's costumes to choose from, the festivals and events around the country, what is showing in the cinema and of course the safety side of Halloween night. Did you know for example that Supervalu expect to sell 85,000 Keelings Irish Pumpkins around this time of year? Or that 50,000 people are expected to line the streets for the Galway Aboo Festival. There is even a Headless Horseman in Offaly.
