Kinsale Chamber of Tourism & Business was presented with a Bank of Ireland Enterprising Towns Regional Category Award and a cheque for €3,000 at the recent awards ceremony in Tullamore, Co. Offaly.
Congratulations and many thanks to all Chamber members, staff and students of Kinsale Community School and all the community groups involved in the presentation and judging process.
Particular thanks to Maeve Dynan, Bank of Ireland Kinsale, for your help and hard work with the Enterprising Towns Weekend last April at Sáile and preparing for the judging in September.
According to Ciaran Fitzgerald, Chairman, Kinsale Chamber of Tourism & Business: “This is a fantastic accolade and we were up against stiff competition but the judges’ citation was extremely positive about local businesses working together as a business community, encouraging enterprise and new businesses to Kinsale.”
The aim of the awards is to assist in the promotion of enterprise across the country by bringing business and community groups together to showcase to a panel of judges the spirit of enterprise in their local area.
A total of 38 towns shared in the prize fund at the awards ceremony, with Tralee, Co. Kerry winning the Overall Bank of Ireland Best Enterprising Town Award 2017.
