Women in business the topic at final breakfast briefing

CEO of Kerry County Council Moira Murrell joined some of county’s most inspiring businesswomen recently for the final Listowel Community and Business Alliance breakfast briefing of the year.

Female Entrepreneurship in the Kingdom was the focus of the recent talk featuring Connect Kerry founder Margaret Kissane, chairperson of the Kerry Businesswomen’s Network, Dina Vyapuri, and CEO of Techfindr Elin Sorensen - an international tech-recruitment company with a base in Listowel.

Administrator with Listowel Business and Community Alliance Colette O’Connor said: “A frosty start didn’t deter the businesspeople of North Kerry from getting out to attend the final Listowel Business and Community Alliance Breakfast Briefing of 2019.

Asdee locals are planning for the future

Work is underway in Asdee to finalise a five-year community plan that will help locals return their small village to its former glory.

The final Community Planning Meeting was held in the village on December 4, where locals decided on their submissions for a booklet due to be launched in 2020.

Across six tables, the groups discussed ‘potential solutions’ to the problems currently faced by the community such as rural decline, depopulation and the loss of services.
