A few weeks ago on a lovely April evening we traveled to NY for the Irish Small Business Awards, sponsored by the Irish Echo and Tourism Ireland. The event was held in Mid-Town Manhattan, with Irish American entrepreneurs starting to gather from 6pm. Attendees included Mr Peter Ryan the Deputy Consul General of Ireland.
On the evening our very own Charlie Lord was among the lucky Irish-American Entrepreneurs being honored. It was a wonderful evening rounded off with a stroll along Broadway in the footsteps of Brendan Behan.
The awards ceremony honored the entrepreneurs and business leaders who form the backbone of the American economy; the doers and risk-takers who have ensured that, where businesses are being built and wealth created, you will find the Irish.
All nominees were companies or individuals who have displayed entrepreneurial excellence and traditional Irish-American determination to make their businesses succeed. Congratulations to recipients. Here is a short video of Charlie being presented the award by Peter Ryan the Vice-Consul General.
