The All-Ireland Business Foundation has accredited Rathbane Golf Course with their second All-Star accolade in a row in recognition of their hard work and dedication.  

The All-Ireland Business Foundation is a national body that accredits best-in-class Irish businesses as Business All-Stars. The Foundation also oversees the All-Ireland Business Summit while promoting peer dialogue amongst our members on an ongoing basis. The process to select the next group of Business All-Star accredited companies has begun. 

Speaking on the announcement, Colm McCarthy, Director of Rathbane Golf Course said: “Achieving the All-Star Accreditation endorses our team’s commitment to change for the better, putting the customer first, and believing in continual improvement. I could not be prouder of my team for working with us to receive this accolade, along with Limerick City and County Council, and all our members. It truly shows, the great years of Rathbane Golf Course are only just beginning!”  

This award is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria. The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.  

Dr Hynes said the Accreditation, which is now held by over 450 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their standards but have nothing to measure them by.  

“We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics,” she said.  

Kieran Ring, Deputy Chair of the Adjudication Board added: “This certificate verifies that Rathbane Golf Course has been named All-Ireland All-Star Public Golf Course Of The Year 2021. The Accreditation is in recognition of Rathbane Golf Course’s outstanding contribution to Limerick’s sports community. Furthermore, we wish to recognise Rathbane Golf Courses conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance and customer-centricity. Rathbane Golf Course is hereby included in the AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence for a second successive year.”
