Adare named a National Category Winner at Bank of Ireland NETA Awards
Adare was announced as the National Category Winner for towns of its size at this year’s Bank of Ireland National Enterprise Town Awards 2019, taking home a trophy and a cash prize of €13,000. In addition, Moyross Youth Academy was named one of the Town Initiatives of the Year, receiving a cash prize fund of €5,000.
The annual Bank of Ireland National Enterprise Town Awards 2019 brings business, community groups, and local authorities together, in each town, to showcase the spirit of enterprise in their local area.
Kilkenny was the overall national winner and Ireland’s most enterprising town for 2019 while Castlebar was declared the Rising Star of this year’s awards.
Speaking at the awards in Kilkenny, Maria Kelly, Head of Bank of Ireland for County Limerick, said: “Supporting enterprise and the financial wellbeing of individuals, businesses and their wider communities is at the heart of everything we do. Strong local economies are the backbone of the Irish economy and Bank of Ireland is proud to be able to recognise and support businesses and community groups working together to create employment, drive growth and build thriving communities.
Since the inaugural awards in 2016, more than 100 towns, urban areas and villages across the country have shared €500,000 in funding to invest in their community.
Maria Kelly said: “We value the support of Limerick County Council and its Local Enterprise Office and congratulate Adare and Moyross Youth Academy on their success at this year’s awards.”
