The event was a huge success with over 130 delegates in attendance to hear how those employers in the border areas can be assisted with their recruitment needs.

There was a number of speakers in attendance including Pat Farrell from the Dept. of Employment Affairs & Social Protection, Lydia McAleenan from the Dept. for Communities, Annmarie O Kane from Border People and Thomas McEvoy of the Local Enterprise Office Louth. Paddy Matthews of also made a presentation. Brenda McGeeney spoke on behalf of the Eures Cross Border Partnership. The presentations of the various speakers can be downloaded below.

Pat McCormick President Dundalk Chamber was delighted with the attendance and stated that the varied selection of speakers on board was fantastic and helped to increase the awareness of what supports are out there for SME’s in the Cross Border Region.

This is just one of many EURES Cross Border events that Dundalk Chamber of Commerce has hosted in the last few years to assist the cross border worker, jobseeker and employer with more planned for the future.
