The Lord Mayor's Multi Generational Family Business Awards

This year the Lord Mayor, Cllr. Des Cahill is delighted to present a new award for Multiā€Generational Family Businesses based in Cork City. It is well recognised that long established family businesses in Cork have contributed hugely to the fabric of our local community.

Their positive impact is seen commercially through their commitment and engagement with theircustomers and the jobs created. Many of these 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation businesses have had to demonstrate real strength and resolve in growing, developing and diversifying through sometimes very difficult economic environments. They have demonstrated their loyalty for and to the communities they serve. It is only fitting then, that Cork City Council through the office of the Lord Mayor would recognise these local stalwarts who have survived for generations and hopefully more to come.

Awardees will also be offered an opportunity to promote their businesses in conjunction with the Lord Mayor’s Family Business Awards Media Sponsor, Red FM.
