Celebrating Louth’s incredible enterprises

Front Page

Sonia Deasy, winner of the 2019 National Enterprise Award, will be the guest speaker at the Louth County Final of the National Enterprise Awards on Friday 6th March. This event, hosted by LMFM's Gerry Kelly, is the finale to Local Enterprise Week. See for details.

Local Enterprise Week Louth is now just two  weeks away. Designed to meet the needs of local people, this series of educational and networking events will help business owners to start, plan, and grow their enterprise.  Hosted by Louth County Council’s Local Enterprise Office (LEO), these free events will take place in venues up and down the county from 2-6th March.

The highlight of the week is always the National Enterprise Awards lunch, which takes place on Friday 6th March. Louth’s Head of Enterprise, Thomas McEvoy, this week extended an invitation to business owners to join him and the Local Enterprise Office team at this celebratory lunch. The event is free of charge and takes place at the Monasterboice Inn, just outside Drogheda.

He explains, “We round off our busy week with our Enterprise Awards lunch on Friday. Hosted by LMFM’s Gerry Kelly, this event will feature a keynote address by Sonia Deasy of Pestle and Mortar. Overall winner of the National Enterprise Awards 2019, Sonia has an incredible business story to tell and great insights to share.”

Thomas continues, “The event truly is a showcase for enterprise in Louth. As part of the ceremony, we will announce the 3 Louth category winners of the National Enterprise Awards. These companies are emerging businesses that have already demonstrated excellence or have a concept that is destined for greatness. We will also reveal which company will represent Louth in the National Enterprise Awards Finals in The Mansion House, Dublin next May.”

Cathaoirleach of Louth County Council, Cllr. Liam Reilly continues, “Enterprise is the backbone of County Louth. We see it everywhere, from big industries to artisan producers and all the SMEs in between. Louth County Council are committed to supporting enterprise in Louth through the services that we provide and the work of our Local Enterprise Office team. I and the other elected members and officials from Louth County Council are proud to be part of this celebration of entrepreneurship in Louth.”

Thomas concluded, “Attendance at this event is free of charge, but places are strictly limited. Don’t miss out! Visit  today to book your place. It really is a great opportunity for business owners to take time out, to network, to learn from others and to grow. We invite all business owners to come and join us for this celebration of enterprise.”
