Dundalk BIDS Manager Edel O’Mahony

The occasion marks the re-launch of the new look Dundalk BIDS office with the ethos of moving forward with a focus towards ‘Better Business for a Brighter Future’
The Better Business Brighter Future’ mantra is also to feature prominently on all Dundalk BIDS branding as it has been included in the redesigned logo.

Speaking on her hopes for the Open Day Edel said:  “I have already met a number of people in my first few weeks in the BIDS office. Many of these were in meetings, in a quite formal surrounding whilst discussing specific projects. It would take months to meet everyone individually so my aim for the Open Day is to try and have as many people as possible call in to us in the Dundalk BIDS office, in a relaxed and friendly environment, let people know the key objectives of the office going forward and how we can work together for the betterment of the town. We realise that not everybody can take time out from their daily work and so, the BIDS Office will remain open until 7pm in order to facilitate as many of the ratepayers as possible”

Edel outlined her vision for the new look Dundalk BIDS. “It is important the Dundalk BIDS Office move forward in an informed, focussed and realistic manner, with determination and positivity. “I look forward to meeting everyone who calls into the BIDS Office for the Open Day.”
