Sweeney Oil wins Galway Chamber’s Business of the Year Award 2019
Galway Chamber Business Awards and Gala Ball 2019 was hosted by President Dave Hickey on Friday 29th November and was attended by a record number of businesses.
The Awards celebrates all that is good about Galway’s business community with the theme for this year being ‘Imeall an Iarthair- Ag Obair As Lámha a Chéile’ or ‘Western Edge, Working Together’.
We believe that the theme captures the spirit and community feel of Galway businesses, to make their enterprises succeed locally, nationally and internationally by working together.
In a wide-ranging address to the attendees, Chamber President Dave Hickey said “Our Business Awards provide an opportunity for Galway’s business community to recognise outstanding achievement by their peers across Galway,”
He also added “The breadth and quality of the entries, nominees and ultimate winners shows that we have a vibrant and talented business community based here.”
He spoke about the importance of collaboration to make Galway the best place in Ireland in which to live, work and to visit.
The President’s Award sponsored by PwC.
This year’s recipient is John Breslin.
