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!
