Network Ireland Kilkenny: Businesswoman of the Year Awards

Glitz and glamour were on display in Langton’s Set Theatre on Friday, June 14th, 2024 for the Network Ireland Kilkenny Businesswoman of the Year Awards.

Congratulations to Network Ireland Kilkenny President Anne Healy for organising a fun-filled night of celebration.

I was delighted to MC the night and thoroughly enjoyed interviewing Ella Dunphy of DNG Ella Dunphy, Anita Thomas, Country Manager at Emirates Ireland, and Catherine Dalton, owner of Crown Hair Salon during the evening. The businesswomen shared their insights with everybody in the room and their honesty was refreshing.

Special word of praise for all the nominees and well done to the overall winners of the 2024 awards:

Emerging Businesswoman: Michelle McDonald, Sásta Skin Health.
Established Businesswoman: Linda Murray, Beoga Nutrition.
Creative Professional of the Year: Sarah McGree, The Wild Grazer.
Employee – Shining Star: Valerie O’Sullivan, Rothe House Trust.

Gail Daniels of Bó Bar Soap was highly commended in the Creative Professional category. Gail is on a roll, as she also picked up silverware at the National Dairy Awards recently.

The finalists will go forward to represent the county in the national Businesswomen of the Year Awards in Lyrath Estate Hotel on September 27, 2024.
