Bank helps show­case lo­cal busi­nesses

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

BANK of Ire­land is to show­case and en­cour­age lo­cal busi­ness at a Din­gle En­ter­prise Town event to be held in Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuib­hne next week.

The bank has been run­ning its En­ter­prise Town ini­tia­tive na­tion­ally since 2015 and the ini­tia­tive is now be­ing held in Din­gle for the first time with the aim of help­ing peo­ple “grow their lo­cal econ­omy while help­ing to foster a re­newed sense of pur­pose and iden­tity for the whole com­mu­nity”

The ini­tia­tive aims to pro­mote the busi­ness, agri­cul­tural, sports and ed­u­ca­tional fa­cil­i­ties on the penin­sula and to sup­port and en­cour­age the devel­op­ment and growth of lo­cal busi­nesses. A key part of this is the ‘show­cas­ing your com­mu­nity’ event in Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuib­hne from 6 – 9pm on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 20, where rugby an­a­lyst Brent Pope will be the spe­cial guest and peo­ple will be able to net­work and learn more about lo­cally avail­able busi­ness and other fa­cil­i­ties. Es­sen­tially this is a ‘shop lo­cal’ pro­mo­tion – the think­ing be­ing that if peo­ple know what’s avail­able on the penin­sula they’ll be more likely to do busines here.

“We want the peo­ple of Din­gle to come out and sup­port lo­cal busi­nesses and the com­mu­nity and see the level of en­ter­prise tak­ing place here,” said Din­gle Bank of Ire­land Branch Man­ager, Michael McCarthy.
