Record attendance at Chamber Budget Breakfast

Niall O Lideadha Laura Morgan Walsh Pat McCormick and Paddy Malone

Dundalk Chamber of Commerce held their annual Budget Breakfast in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Dundalk. Sponsored by PayPal, the event was a sell out with just on 200 in attendance. Attendees from financial, professional and the wider business community came out early to hear speaker Niall O Lideadha Senior Manager with Ernst & Young unravel the complexities of this year’s budget.

PRO of Dundalk Chamber Paddy Malone also asked all attendees to consider buying the new Shop Local Gift Vouchers if they are considering giving Christmas bonus or other one off payment. There is no better cost effective way of putting up to €500 in an employee’s hand, with no PAYE, USC or PRSI cost. The Chamber is meeting ALL administration costs and as a result a €100 voucher costs the employer €100 and the retailer gets €100 back from the Chamber.

The voucher which can be spent in Gift shops, Butchers, Wine, hairdressers, beauticians, car parts, gyms, clothes shops, toy shops, video game shops restaurants, travel agents and much more… He would also encourage members of the public to buy them as they are the ideal Christmas, wedding or Birthday gift. More information on the vouchers can be found on

This scheme means cash will be spent locally assisting Dundalk businesses and thereby increasing employment. This is a “win win” deal.
