Baile Átha Kia


Kia Motors Ireland have booked all of Dublin Bus’s inventory of Capital T sites for a 10 week period to promote their ‘Baile Átha Kia’ campaign.

(The title of the campaign is a play on Dublin’s name in Irish: Baile Átha Cliath that literally translates as town of the hurdled ford).

The clever idea is designed to further enhance the Korean firm’s profile in Dublin. The OOH campaign will be accompanied by a social media video campaign, shot at different locations around the city, encouraging Dublin families to “Make the most of ‘Baile Átha Kia’” over the weekend. The ‘Baile Átha Kia’ concept was created by Focus Advertising and the media campaign was managed by Havas Media.
