Cahir Chamber hosted its first ever event last Wednesday when it staged a ‘Budget Breakfast’ briefing for business people in the town.

Over thirty local business owners and managers attended and heard Patrick O’Gorman from accountancy firm O’Gorman, Brannigan, Purtill detail the business themed measures in Budget 2014, which had been announced the day before by Minister for Finance Michael Noonan.

The annual ‘Budget Breakfast’ briefing is a popular event in Clonmel, where it has become well established in recent years.

The maintenance of the 9% VAT rate was regarded as a success by local businesses, particularly in Cahir which has a significant amount of businesses in the tourism and hospitality sector.

Speaking after the event Brian Cleary, CEO of Clonmel Chamber, said that the Cahir event was an extremely positive one and he said it shows that there is definitely an appetite for businesses to come together to develop initiatives to help each other and the wider Cahir area.

Cahir Chamber has been established by business people in the town with the aim of assisting businesses, maintaining employment locally and developing initiatives that will benefit the area. The Chamber, now in its early stages, invites businesses to play a part and to join the Chamber for the coming year.

With this in mind, tomorrow, Thursday, October 24, Cahir Chamber will hold its second meeting for the business community. The meeting will take place in Cahir House Hotel from 6.15pm to 7.30pm.

The aim of this meeting is to select a committee of memebrs for the coming year and discuss how the Chamber of Commerce in Cahir can assist businesses in the town. This will be an open meeting for all the businesses in the town and all are welcome. Please feel free to invite a colleague or a client to this event.
