The Lord Mayors Multi Generational Family Business Awards will take place in the Council Chambers next Tuesday 31st January, 2017 at 6.30 p.m. in City Hall.
The Winners are:
- TW Murray (Retail)
- Ideal Pet Shop (Retail)
- Crowley’s Opticians (Professional)
- Cronin’s Coaches (Trade)
These awards recognise the long established family businesses in Cork that have contributed to the fabric of our local community. Their positive impact is seen commercially through their commitment and engagement with their customers and the jobs created. Many of these 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation businesses have had to demonstrate real strength and resolve in growing, developing and diversifying through sometimes very difficult economic environments. They have demonstrated their loyalty for and to the communities they serve. It is only fitting then, that Cork City Council through the office of the Lord Mayor would recognise these local stalwarts who have survived for generations and hopefully more to come.
Each winner will be presented with a special plaque by the Lord Mayor, Cllr Des Cahill.
In addition to the plaque, all award winners will receive access to a mentoring and training package delivered by the Local Enterprise Office, Cork City which will be tailored to their business needs.
