BANK OF IRELAND has announced the return of its Enterprise Town initiative to Killarney on Friday, April 7, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

Taking place in Killarney Community College, the event features a business, community and sports expo as well as plenty of family-friendly activity throughout the day.

Killarney Bank of Ireland branch manager Deirdre Twomey said: “The local community have embraced this initiative wholeheartedly, and working together we have organised a very exciting programme of activity. The event will be free to attend and is open to all. It is a fantastic opportunity for the community to see the level of enterprise here in Killarney.”

Over the course of the day over 80 exhibitors will display a wide variety of products and services, and Bank of Ireland is calling on those living and working in Killarney to come and support these local businesses.

The evening will feature a special sports discussion with two Kerry football legends Tomas Ó Sé and Sean O’Sullivan.

Other highlights to look forward to on the evening include the opening performance by Celtic Step and Bizworld presentations from two local schools, as well as musical entertainment from St Oliver’s primary school choir.

The head of Bank of Ireland for County Kerry, Frank Shaw, said: “Bank of Ireland is committed to supporting business growth across Kerry and we want to continue to be Ireland’s Enterprise Bank. We would encourage local businesses and the wider community to come and share in activities on Friday, April 7.”

Lee Strand was recognised once again for their exceptional performance and commitment to sustainability with Gold Membership at the Origin Green 2022 awards.

Origin Green is Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme led by Bord Bia – The Irish Food Board. Gold Membership is awarded to companies who demonstrate an exceptional annual performance on their sustainability targets.

“We are delighted Lee Strand is recognised once again with the prestigious Origin Green Gold Membership for our commitment to sustainability,” Gearoid Linnane, CEO said.

“In Lee Strand environmental management and sustainability are key elements of our business model, from launching 100% renewable cartons, to reducing water usage and energy efficiency. This is a great achievement by our sustainability team who are continually striving for higher levels of environmental excellence. We would also like to thank Veronica Kennelly from the Munster Technological University who assisted Lee Strand in the development of our Origin Green plan.”

Origin Green continues to evolve to ensure Bord Bia is helping Irish food and drink companies to remain up to date with the evolving needs of trade customers and their consumers, globally. With the introduction of the Origin Green credits system in early 2022, it is now easier to identify members who are performing at a high level or excelling in their sustainability performance.

To retain ongoing membership of Origin Green, companies must subsequently submit an annual review to demonstrate clear progress against the established targets and initiatives set. This annual review is subject to an independent third-party review by their verification authority Mabbett. This ensures minimum programme requirements are consistently met and maintained. Companies receive credits for their performance in areas such as raw material sourcing; water and energy efficiency; waste reduction; packaging; and social sustainability. Origin Green has established five different membership tiers based on company size and turnover, so that a real diversity of industry is reflected in the overall Gold Membership.
