Issue 38 – July 2017 – Connect

Connect-July-front cover


Well that’s it for another year the Connect Kerry Women in Business Awards were a great success and lots of wonderful ladies in business all over the county attended and had a super night with family and friends. Congratulations to the overall winners and continued success to them and indeed to all the finalists who were all winners just to be part of it. Business is good in the county and it was evident in the room on the night. We have so many pictures from the night we just couldn’t include them all so log on to our website for lots more photos.


We also chat with the very entertaining Crystal Swing fresh from their performance at the Radio Kerry All Irish Music Show. They are great fun and lovely to chat with. We also met up with Vera O Leary of the Kerry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre now providing 25 years of service.

Listowel Chef Lizzy Lyons is the new Flogas Ambassador and we also have some advice and tips on upgrading your car during the second half of the year and getting your 172 plate but we also include some general tips on motoring. Dining out in the summer months is extremely popular so we check out where it’s happening and what we would recommend.

School is out and this usually means lots of stressed out parents planning childcare for the next two months. Just remember, if you can at all make a little time for them, it can be difficult to do this but they need some time too, work will still be there, kids grow up, and they usually grow up way too fast, so make some lasting memories over the next few weeks that will last forever. Have fun.

Until next month
