I would like to wish all of You the best of luck and appreciate all the hard work you put into this! Unfortunately, because of a personal circumstance (COVID-19), I was unable to present the award personally, on behalf of CK Skillnet on Saturday.
The Kilkenny Business Awards 2021 take place in the Lyrath Estate Hotel on Saturday 12th March.
The gala awards ceremony will celebrate the resilience and determination of the local economy with 18 awards. A new category for 2021 will honour the Best Business Pivot in the Pandemic. A special recognition for local businesses with an exceptional Covid-19 story to tell. Local businesses that, in the face of an unprecedented global pandemic, lockdown, restrictions, closures and much uncertainty, have not only survived but thrived, adapted and grown. The coveted Lifetime Achievement Award, President’s Award plus the overall business of the year will also be announced on March 12th.
After a challenging two years, the flagship event provides a long-awaited opportunity to meet and network, in person, with colleagues, clients and friends from Kilkenny’s business community.
Colin Ahern, President of Kilkenny Chamber said,
“The date is set to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of local business. Kilkenny Chamber is thrilled to announce the return of its flagship gala event on 12th March. The event will be a special reunion and chance for people to meet face to face in a safe environment. I am looking forward to meeting friends and colleagues to celebrate everything that we have achieved across the county under unprecedented circumstances.”
The evening of celebration will start with a Champagne Reception from 6 pm in the Conference Centre at Lyrath Estate Hotel followed by a delicious four-course dinner. Host Helen Carrol will announce the winners throughout the evening. Music by the Party Girls will round off the evening.
