Kinsale is a very vibrant town with a very vibrant community and the purpose of the initiative was to pull together the various strands of the community to work together. This has been hugely successful and something that was raised in the Oireachtas, that could be rolled out in to every town in Ireland. The theme of the Doing Business In Kinsale 2018/2019 was in the area of education and entrepreneurship and gave certain people and businesses a way of showcasing what they do and the strategy really is to pick a various theme each year to focus on in the town as the theme of the publication.
The outcomes and results have been really positive feedback. Because it is an e-book format, it is available to download anywhere in the word and we have received some really great outcomes and results from this initiative. We are now in the process of starting 2019/2020 publication and this will have a theme of sports and the arts.
If you would like to be part of our 2019/20 publication please email us and you can see our current version on www.doingbusinessinkinsale.com as a guideline. It is open to all local stakeholders who have an interest in the town or local groups, organisations, charities and business. The project is produced by Accountancy firm Fitzgerald & Partners who work with businesses moving to the area including Brexit advisory service for SMEs for both Irish & UK firms.
