Local start-up Huggnote partners with Halloween FM to get the party started this Halloween weekend.

Limerick-based start-up Huggnote is in high spirits as it announces its partnership with Halloween FM this weekend. Huggnote – the app that turns songs into virtual HUGGs has just released its limited-edition Happy Halloween theme – hosted by the digital station.

Huggnote reconceives popular music as a form of emotional communication, digitally gift-wrapped as ‘feel-good’ multi-sensory experiences (HUGGs) shareable with unlimited friends via text or messaging app in a matter of seconds. “Our Happy Halloween theme is really popular because it’s one of those holidays that’s really grown in popularity in Ireland but still doesn’t have a tradition of sending cards or other greetings,” says founder and CEO Jacqui Meskell. “Huggnote is all about sharing good vibes with those we love – especially during holidays – and so having Ireland’s first ever Halloween radio station host Huggnote’s Halloween theme - is exactly on brand for us” she says. “Our mutual goal is to ensure we bring a fun and enriching experience to as many Halloween music fans as possible – and it certainly seems that there is no shortage of those all across the globe,” she says.

Founded by local sisters Jacqui (pictured) and Perry Meskell,  Huggnote has grown from idea to globally scaling app, with 1900% YoY growth in 204 countries. Named one of Ireland’s ’50 Most Ambitious Start-Ups’ earlier this year, Huggnote has also won multiple awards both nationally and internationally including ‘Best Emerging Business’ at the Limerick Chamber Awards, the DCU Ryan Academy High-Fliers, a National Start-Up Award, 

Digital Start-Up Award, Google’s Adopt a Start-Up and the Mozilla ‘Builders Award’ for companies with ‘the potential to fix the internet’.  CEO Jacqui is a two-time ‘Digital Trailblazer of the Year’ finalist as well as ‘Female Entrepreneur of the Year’.

To use Huggnote to send a song as a gift go to - select happy Halloween, choose a song from many top chart Halloween hits, add a personal message and send via a choice of ways – including WhatsApp or SMS., which will broadcast until 31st October is a digital radio station that plays wickedly good music and is the perfect soundtrack to Halloween celebrations.
