Colin Duggan, President of County Carlow Chamber who received the award on behalf of the Chamber and its members commented “We are delighted that County Carlow Chamber has been selected to receive this national award. Shop & Support Local has always been a top priority for the Chamber and while this latest campaign had very positive local results, we are delighted to see the campaign receive this national recognition.”

Speaking of the award, Brian O’Farrell, CEO of County Carlow Chamber advised that while the project was developed by the Chamber, it would not have been so successful without the support of our members in developing and delivering the campaign, but more importantly the Carlow people who supported the campaign and our local businesses on a regular basis. Brian expressed his thanks to O’Toole’s Centra Circle K in Tullow, Walsh’s Homevalue in Bagenalstown, Detail Menswear, Swan Electrical and The Woodford Dolmen who hosted the Carlow Elves and also to Wise Eyes, KCLR, The Nationalist, Touchpoint Media and Carlow Local Enterprise Office.
