Now in its eleventh year, the IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year Awards champions business women’s contribution to Ireland’s economy – and their role within the Irish business community at home and abroad.

This event was supported by high-profile entities; including Newstalk and Enterprise Ireland.

The judging panel included Bobby Kerr, entrepreneur and presenter of Newstalk’s Down to Business; also on the panel was Enterprise Ireland’s Sarita Johnston.

The Irish abroad

Meanwhile, Abbey Machinery – like many Irish manufacturers – had a busy run of days at the recent Agritechnica machinery show in Germany.

Minister of State Pat Breen was among the many visitors to the stand. Abbey Machinery’s exhibit, together with those of other Irish companies, was a familiar stopping point for the significant number of Irish farmers, agricultural contractors and dealers that travelled to the event.
