Kildare Chamber of Commerce A Year in Review final

Kildare Town is Officially the Cleanest in Ireland.

0

In January this year, Kildare Town won the award of Ireland’s cleanest town by the Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) group.

The last time we entered, many years ago we placed 16th so this award is a true testament to the work that is tirelessly being done in Kildare to keep the town clean.

The Tidy Towns group in Kildare along with members of Kildare County Council do a Trojan job keeping our town looking beautiful along with the help of many other people in our community.

Kildare Town Wins Merit Award @ Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town Competition

At an awards ceremony in Roscommon Town yesterday evening, 7th December , Kildare Town won a merit award from Bank of Ireland for our entry to the Enterprise Town Competition.  This is a great honour, as just 6 merits were given out from 20 towns entries in four different counties.

In November this year, Solas Bhride hosted a presentation organised by the Kildare Chamber of Commerce to three judges from Bank of Ireland for the new initiative, Enterprise Town. The event was a real success and a true testament to the wider Kildare Town community. On the day, and on very short notice, many different business and community groups were represented and for their participation and very hard work, the Chamber would like to thank the following community groups, clubs, businesses and their representatives, you know who you are!

The Cloak on Dragons’ Den on Easter Sunday

Producer and director of ‘The Cloak’to face the Dragons’ Den
RTÉ One at 9.30pm, Sunday, 20th April, 2014.

First up in the Den this week, we see two entrepreneurs employ some very unique and attention grabbing tactics when they deliver a theatrical pitch for their production The Cloak, an Irish musical based on the story of St. Brigid’s life. With 20 years experience in the entertainment industry, working in television, theatre and film, Padraig J. Dunne and his business partner, Anne Brain are looking for an investment of €100,000 for 10%. They arrive to the Den with members of The Cloak cast who provide an atmospheric and haunting background performance throughout their pitch. Described by Padraig as the ‘truly gritty story’ of St. Brigid’s life, The Cloak documents the pain, oppression and abuse endured by St. Brigid throughout her life. Padraig tells his potential investors that the show has been met with great enthusiasm by the public, receiving standing ovations on each night of its performance … The only question is, do they have what it takes to make the Dragons stand up and take notice?
