Bank of Ireland’s Enterprise Town initiative will be coming to Galway this May. Taking place in Clifden, Athenry, Oranmore, Ballinasloe, the events will feature a Business, Community and Sports Expo, as well as plenty of family friendly activity throughout the day. The Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town Galway events have been organised by the bank in partnership with local communities.
Bank of Ireland is investing in excess of €1.2 million in its Enterprise Town initiative in 2017. Following the success of the Enterprise Town Programme in 2016, which involved 100 communities across the country, Bank of Ireland has confirmed that over 120 Enterprise Town events will take place nationwide this year.
There are four Enterprise Town initiatives taking place in Clifden, Athenry, Oranmore, Ballinasloe in the month of May. Some of Ireland’s most famous faces will attend each of the events. RTE rugby pundit, Brent Pope, will speak at the Clifden Enterprise Town event on 6 May; Ireland’s favourite Dragon, Gavin Duffy and Wexford Hurling manager, Davy Fitzgerald, will speak at the Athenry Enterprise Town on 6 May, Gavin Duffy is also attending the Ballinasloe Enterprise Town on 19 May and celebrity chef, Rachel Allen, will feature at the Oranmore Enterprise events on 13 May.
Each of the events will feature a Business, Community and Sports Expo as well as plenty of family friendly activities. The initiative aims to promote enterprise and drive business momentum for local businesses and the wider sports and social community in the localities by connecting residents with all the towns have to offer. Events are free to attend and are open to both customers and non-customers of Bank of Ireland.
Commenting on the four initiatives, Head of Bank of Ireland for Galway County, Tomas Diskin, said: “Bank of Ireland is committed to supporting business growth across Galway and we want to continue to be Ireland’s Enterprise Bank. We would encourage local businesses and the wider community to come and share in activities of each of the Enterprise Town events in Oranmore, Clifden, Ballinasloe and Athenry in May. I would like to thank the Enterprise Town Committees in each town and all those involved in helping to organise and exhibit at the events.”
