Kerry Month of Enterprise (KMOE), which is taking place across the entire month of March, is celebrating 10 years.

KMOE gives established businesses and budding entrepreneurs an opportunity to network and discover the assistance available to them in growing and sustaining a business in Kerry.

The calendar of events for 2023, which can be viewed at www.kmoe.ie, includes over 60 events across the month. The county-wide events cater for businesses at various stages of development across many sectors from start-ups to established and growing businesses.

Highlights include a series of virtual events presented by Kerry Local Enterprise Office as part of a National Enterprise Spotlight series, focusing on exporting, online digital training, and driving costs savings with lean, among other topics.

Údarás na Gaeltachta will host sessions on critical thinking and messaging for businesses looking to establish operations in Gaeltacht areas, while local development companies SKDP, IRD Duhallow and NEWKD will host a number of events focused on self-employment supports, social media advertising, and advanced Excel training. Munster Technological University will once again play host to the Kerry Start-up Challenge, New Frontiers Showcase, and a host of other events aimed at developing entrepreneurial mindset and enterprise creation.

Kerry Month of Enterprise is a collaborative initiative between Munster Technological University, Kerry County Council, Kerry Local Enterprise Office, Enterprise Ireland, IDA Ireland, Udarás na Gaeltachta, Kerry Innovation Centre, North, East & West Kerry Development (NEWKD), South Kerry Partnership Development (SKDP), and IRD Duhallow.

“Kerry is a county with entrepreneurship in its DNA and never has it been more important to support our business community," Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr John Francis Flynn, said.

"In its ninth year Kerry Month of Enterprise has grown year after year. Kerry Month of Enterprise celebrates excellence in enterprise and shines a light on the activities that are ongoing throughout the year and the value that the partners involved bring to our county.”

Tim Daly, Head of Strategy at MTU added that "KMOE is celebrating 10 years this year but all of the enterprise partners in this initiative have worked together for many years beyond that to ensure Kerry businesses and entrepreneurs receive the best start possible. We look forward to welcoming all stages of businesses at the series of virtual and in-person events, brought to you by KMOE in March, and indeed throughout the year.”

Kerry take on Cork in the first round of the Munster Championship at Fitzgerald Stadium on Saturday.

This glamour tie always attracts a huge crowd and Cork fans will travel in their droves from the Rebel County.

As a result there will be parking restrictions and traffic disruptions in the town on Saturday afternoon.

“Please be aware that the town will be bustling with activity, and traffic congestion is expected. Some parking areas may reach capacity, so we recommend allowing extra time for your journey,” said a Garda spokesperson.

Parking will be available in the following areas near the stadium: New Street, The Glebe car park, Fair Hill car park, High Street, Rock Road car park and the Lewis Road car park.

Parking in the vicinity of Fitzgerald Stadium is reserved for residents with parking passes only.
