Blackrock Village is in the running to share the more than €100,000 in prize money offered by Bank of Ireland as it competes to be declared the county’s most enterprising town. Blackrock’s initial application was positively received by the judging panel and we are one of 10 towns and regions within Dublin vying for one of a number of prizes. This competition is a wonderful opportunity for Blackrock to demonstrate to the judging panel the many reasons why it is a superb place to work, live & play and to express the strength of our local community spirit and actions.
The Blackrock Business Network is busily preparing for the 3-hour judges visit in just 3 weeks’ time. We have so much to show them including Blackrock’s historical past and our current success as an enterprising, attractive town that reaches out across the community and the voluntary groups involved in sporting, cultural, environmental and heritage pursuits. We have ambitious plans for the future and, with the support of the local council, we are confident that we will achieve them.
We are grateful for the ongoing support of our local businesses and residents who make Blackrock what it is and what it can be. Let’s work together to make a difference and be recognised as a successful enterprising town.
