Busi­ness awards nom­i­nees re­vealed

The Corkman - - FRONT PAGE -

FROM drones to aro­mas and from en­ergy con­ser­va­tion to spuds, the short­list for this year’s IRD Duhal­low Busi­ness Awards show­case the wide va­ri­ety of en­trepreneur­ship thriv­ing across the re­gion.

Eigh­teen nom­i­nees have been short­listed for the fifth an­nual awards and they are re­vealed for the first time in our spe­cial sup­ple­ment, in­side this week.

Notable among the nom­i­nees is the scope and va­ri­ety of en­trepreneurs emerg­ing across ru­ral North and Mid Cork. Th­ese range from mums fi­nally tak­ing the plunge to re­alise long-held dreams, to a young man who’s hop­ing his ‘eye in the sky’ busi­ness will take off while he’s keep­ing his feet firmly planted on the ground.

Mean­while, the short­list also in­cludes house­hold names many will recog­nise in­stantly.

All will now get their mo­ment in the spot­light, in our sup­ple­ment, at the glit­ter­ing awards night next week, Novem­ber 16, at the James O’Ke­effe In­sti­tute in New­mar­ket, and for­ever af­ter if they hap­pen to be among the lucky few tak­ing home a tro­phy on the night.

First, how­ever, we in­tro­duce them in our sup­ple­ment, in­side.
