Each year, the Cobh and Harbour Chamber organise a prestigious local competition to find the ‘Face of Business’ and ‘Salesperson of the Year’. The event is sponsored by the Chamber, Cobh Town Council and the Allied Irish Bank. The awards took place in the Sirius Arts Centre on the 18th September. The event was well attended, with guests including Chamber President Brian Curtis, Mayor Mr. John Mulvihill Jnr., the Town Clerk Mr. Paraig Lynch, Cobh Tidy Towns committee, fresh from their own silver medal win, Chamber members, friends and relatives of the nominees.
