The Awards Ceremony

The awards night has grown considerably over the years to become one of the key events in the calendar and a key priority this year is to ensure a safe and spacious event for all to celebrate the innovation and resilience of the people and businesses across Carlow. This year’s ceremony is scheduled for Thursday 11th November, and it will take place simultaneously in Ballykealey House, The Lord Bagenal Inn and the Woodford Dolmen Hotel.

The evening will open in each venue from 7pm with canapes and a drinks reception sponsored by Walsh Whiskey and Carlow Brewing Company, before the opening of the awards ceremony at 8pm. As the event progresses, the awards will be presented in each venue and the experience shared by all in attendance.
