Friday 27th January 2012 - 2 Great Initiatives

Friday 27th Jan - Will see two great initiatives being launched:-

1) SMECommunity - an organisation formed last year over twitter, will be holding its first event in Birr. Over 150 are expected, all working on a common goal. to help the small business person, the startups, make a difference across Ireland. This is the first of a National campaign to have events across the whole Island of Ireland. It shows what a couple of hard working people can achieve in a short time. Debbie is an inspiration to all those in the community and her passion for helping all SME's is amazing.
