Fingal Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

BAL­BRIG­GAN Cham­ber of Com­merce held a busi­ness net­work­ing break­fast for all lo­cal busi­nesses in Bal­brig­gan Golf Club re­cently.

The Cham­ber Pres­i­dent, John Cu­miskey gave an up­date on the cham­ber’s cur­rent ac­tiv­i­ties and wel­comed two speak­ers.

Nora Roban of Re­mem­ber Us, a so­cial club for young peo­ple with spe­cial needs and their fam­i­lies gave the first key­note speech of the break­fast and kept the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity up to date with the char­ity’s fundrais­ing drive to fit out their new home in Bal­brig­gan.

She thanked the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity for all of their sup­port in their fundrais­ing ef­forts and ap­pealed for that sup­port to con­tinue as the char­ity nears its fundrais­ing goal and the dream of es­tab­lish­ing a per­ma­nent home in the town for this beloved lo­cal spe­cial needs club.

Rita Crowley of Al­ter Pharma was the other fea­tured speaker at the event.

Al­ter Pharma is a Bel­gian multi­na­tional phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pany which spe­cialises in the de­vel­op­ment, mar­ket­ing, sales and sup­ply of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals for niche prod­ucts that would be dif­fi­cult to man­u­fac­ture.

The com­pany chose Bal­brig­gan as the head­quar­ters of its world­wide op­er­a­tions af­ter a lengthy lo­ca­tion search.

The com­pany are hir­ing new staff on an on­go­ing ba­sis.
