Castlebar has been shortlisted for a national award- A Rising Star Award, in the 2019 Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town Awards.
The Awards recognise towns and communities working together making their areas a better place to be.
A panel of adjudicators visited the county town last month and met representatives of the wide range of groups and organisations that are part of the Enterprise Town Awards entry – including Castlebar Chamber, Tidy Towns, ihub, GMIT, Castlebar Tourism Office among others.
Then earlier this week three additional adjudicators arrived, as Castlebar has been shortlisted for an additional award category- A Rising Star Award.
John Mulroy is the President of Castlebar Chamber and he told Midwest News today that’s it’s been a busy but exciting few weeks for everyone involved.
