What a night!  19 Award winners were announced, with Nora Twomey from Cartoon Saloon receiving the President’s Award, and jewellery and goldsmith Rudolf Heltzel receiving the Lifetime Achievements Award.  See Winners with Logos 2018 for all the Winners.  A huge debt of gratitude is owed to our Sponsors, particularly State Street who were the main sponsors of the evening, but also all those companies who sponsored individual awards and who contributed in no small way to the success of the evening.   Thanks are also due to Mary Kennedy for her superb work as MC for the evening, and to Purcell Masterson. Fastlane Audio Visual and Mycrofilms who produced a spectacular event.

Mycrofilms have put together a terrific video of the evening so if you missed it (or if you want to be reminded of a great evening) have a look

Chamber Update

For the duration of the Covid-19 crisis, Kilkenny Chamber staff will be working from home and will continue to provide our full range of services.



We will continue to lobby on behalf of businesses throughout this challenging time and are scheduled to have regular meetings with the Dept of the Taoiseach as the situation evolves.


Keep up to date with us on our website www.kilkennychamber.ie, or on our social media pages.


We are still working on your behalf and you can contact us on 056 7752767, or at admin@kilkennychamber.ie. We are thinking of all those businesses who have taken the difficult, but correct, decision to close their doors until further notice, and we look forward to supporting them all when they reopen.

We also encourage everyone to support those businesses which will remain open – in so far as is safe.


Thank you to all those front-line workers who are working hard to keep us all safe and well.
