Message from our President T.J. Kinsella on behalf of Clonmel & Co. Tipperary Chamber!

After a busy year with lots of activity and change in the Chamber, the Christmas holiday season allows us an opportunity to reflect on a great year in 2016. To support our mission in the coming years, we added three directors to our board this year with Anita Oakey (Aoki Interiors), Gerry O’Gorman (Fieldmaster) and Frank McGrath (Ulster Bank) joining the team. We warmly welcome them and look forward to working closely with the expanded board to drive an improved environment for local business.
As we look forward to 2017, we hope to see further improvement and growth in the overall economic and business environment. We have a number of events already scheduled for the New Year including four Manufacturing Excellence events and our first Social Media event on 16th Feb. Our priorities will continue to centre on our members’ needs as we support and promote business in Clonmel and County Tipperary. As we develop our plans for 2017 and beyond, we would like your input.  Please share your ideas and feedback with us by contacting anyone of our team or emailing  

We wish you a very Merry Christmas as well as a safe, prosperous and happy New Year.  
T.J Kinsella
President Clonmel & County Tipperary Chamber

North South Interconnector essential to sustain Ireland’s economic growth

Chambers Ireland on Weds. 21st Dec. 2016 welcomed the decision by ABP to grant approval for the North South Interconnector. This Interconnector is an essential piece of infrastructure that Ireland needs to sustain our economic growth.
Ian Talbot, Chief Executive Chambers Ireland said, “The reliance on a single interconnection between North and South that is at constant risk of outages poses significant risks to businesses that depend on a secure electricity supply. This scenario is unacceptable in a developed economy. Read more..."
