Connect Kerry Women In Business Awards 2016

On Friday night the 10th June, Connect Kerry held an awards night to honour Kerry women for their contribution
to business in Kerry. The awards was to recognise the achievements of women working in industry, managing a business or entrepreneurs in Kerry. Ten finalists were selected for each category and the award winner was announced on the night of the awards.

I’m delight to say we won The Connect Kerry Business Of Fashion Retail Award on the night. Thank you so much to all our wonderful customers in Ballybunion, Castleisland and beyond without you this would not be possible.. We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone that made the final and to all the winners on the night. It was great to be part of it all.
