About the events
Bank of Ireland is investing in excess of €1.2 million in its Enterprise Town initiative in 2017. Following the success of the Enterprise Town Programme in 2016, which involved 100 communities across the country, Bank of Ireland has confirmed that over 120 Enterprise Town events will take place nationwide this year.
The initiatives aim to promote enterprise and drive business momentum for local businesses and the wider sports and social community in the locality by connecting residents with all the town has to offer. Events are free to attend and are open to both customers and non-customers of Bank of Ireland.
Over the course of the day over 100 exhibitors will display a wide variety of products and services, and Bank of Ireland is calling on those living and working in Kinsale to come and support these local businesses.
