City Zipline Event


Friday, 23rd September 2016:
Today Centra, Ireland’s leading convenience retailer, gave people an experience they would never forget at Dublin’s Herbert Park where hundreds of people got the chance to soar through the sky on Centra’s City Zipline. The event marked the launch of Centra’s new brand position, Live Every Day which encourages people to live in the moment and make the most of every day.


As part of the Live Every Day launch, Centra announced the #LiveToday photography competition, encouraging people to share an image that shows them making the most of their day using hashtag #LiveToday. Centra Ambassador Pippa O’Connor and leading Irish photographer Barry McCall will judge the competition, with the overall winner being awarded €1,000 cash prize. Other Centra ambassadors involved in the launch included wellness & fitness expert Pat Divilly and hurling star Henry Shefflin who ziplined through the sky and shared their #LiveToday moment on social media.


Centra’s City Zipline welcomed hundreds of people to Herbert Park and helped them live in the moment and experience what Live Every Day is all about. Participants also enjoyed workout sessions with Pat Divilly, nutritional advice from Sarah Keogh, hurling tips from Henry Shefflin, entertainment by DJ Marcus O’Laoire as well as ample refreshments.

This change is not just a tagline, there will be tangible proof points that customers will experience including the refurbishment across our network of stores.”
