The Dundalk Chamber AGM took place last week. Speaking at the Chamber AGM, Pat McCormick is delighted with the initiatives undertaken by Dundalk Chamber. The Shop Local Gift Vouchers sales have hit over €2 million and the Chamber hope to sell over €800,000 again this Christmas.

Dundalk Chamber was successful in a successful application to Skillnets and has appointed a new Skillnet Manager Aidan Callan who is providing training to local companies.

The Chamber has hosted many Brexit events including a Conference and Breakfast Briefings. PRO of Dundalk Chamber, Paddy Malone has briefed a number of embassies, parliamentary delegations from EU countries and Switzerland. In addition he has briefed both national and international press on the practical problems facing all of us on the island but in particular the border region.

Pat mentioned that the Chamber is working tirelessly on behalf of its membership promoting Dundalk as a great place to do business and the newly appointed officers will continue this valuable work into the future.

In that regard the work undertaken by Rodd Bond, Paddy Malone and Pat McCormick deserves special recognition. This work, over many years cumulated in a joint Dundalk/Drogheda Chambers together with Oriel Hub and The Mill in the M1 corridor initiative.

The M1 corridor stretching from Drogheda in the South to Newry in the North is designated a special area under the National Development Plan 2040. The designation of the area will enhance Dundalk’s ability to attract new business.

Pat thanked WuXi Biologics Ltd and Brendan McGrath for coming on board as our major sponsor and he said that he looked forward to a long and fruitful relationship for both organisations.
