Enterprise Town Award 2017

Tubbercurry won first runner up prize in the recent Bank of Ireland Enterprise Town Awards, announced at a Gala Dinner in Tullamore, Co. Offaly Competing in the category of town sizes up to 3,000 population, Tubbercurry fought off opposition from towns all over Ireland, and were only beaten in the proverbial “photo finish” by Cootehill from Co. Cavan.

The competition was open to towns all over Ireland and involved the competing towns making detailed presentations to a panel of judges. The businesses and entrepreneurs of Tubbercurry embraced the whole concept magnificently, and made top quality presentations from a variety of entrepreneurs ranging in age from those in their 70’s to teenagers.

The presentation by Tubbercurry lasted 4 hours and involved visiting factories, workshops and smaller businesses throughout the community.

Led by Tubbercurry Chamber of Commerce & Community Association, and headed up by Louise Kilbane and Geraldine Brennan, the prize won is €2,000 which will be used within the Community to further enhance local amenities and facilities. Well done to all concerned.

Weekly News - 6th November

Bank of Ireland Enterprise Award

Tubbercurry was recently entered into a Bank of Ireland sponsored “Enterprise” competition, and judging took place last week at An Chroí. A detailed presentation, running over 4 hours was made to the two judges in the presence of over 100 people.

Geraldine Brennan, President of Tubbercurry Chamber of Commerce and Community Association opened proceedings with a formal welcome and this was followed by presentations on various aspects of enterprise in the community by Roger McCarrick, Paraic Neary, Romauld Mullarkey, Teresa Cawley, Louise Kilbane, David Hosey and young Adam Walsh.

An exhibition of over 50 local large and small businesses with their wares was held in the exhibition space of An Chroí both inside and outside the building, and the judges took time to interact and meet every single exhibitor.  After that they visited a number of local businesses including, Tool & Gauge, Basta, and Alpha Precision Engineering before a final wrap up of the presentation was made.

This was a marvellous event and most informative for those locals who attended as well as for the judges.  The results will be announced at a Banquet on November 16th, and hopefully, Tubbercurry will be acknowledged for all the effort that was made in presenting the town in a positive manner.

Located on the Ballina road, and just a short walk to town centre, the premises is available to rent out at low rates for start up businesses of any type.  The re-development was done by Tubbercurry Chamber of Commerce and Community Association with Sligo Co. Council and the developers are anxious to get full occupancy as soon as possible.  An Chroí has recently been nominated for an award in the “Excellence in local Government Awards” by Chambers Ireland in the section “Promoting Economic Development”. This is a great feather in the cap of Tubbercurry Chamber of Commerce, and an acknowledgement of how well Tubbercurry is working at present with Sligo Co. Council.  Personnel deeply involved in the sourcing of funding including, Romauld Mullarkey, Louise Kilbane and Geraldine Brennan on behalf of Tubbercurry, working in conjunction with Ciaran Hayes CEO and Ray O’Grady, Sligo Co. Council.

Winners of the Awards will be announced next month. In the meantime, if you or a friend have a business idea or a small start up business, feel free to call to An Chroí to get further details.

John Mullaney, Tubbercurry & Scotland
The sad and unexpected death occurred of John Mullaney, late of Teeling Street, Tubbercurry. Age 57, John was son of Evelyn and the late Jim Mullaney of Teeling Street. Jim and Evelyn were prominent business people from the mid 1940’s to the late 70’s in Teeling Street where Murphy’s Hotel now stands.  Young John Mullaney grew up on Teeling Street and worked in the business as a youngster. An able and versatile sportsman, John was an excellent athlete at long jump and sprint events and regularly represented Tubbercurry at the National Community Games, then held at Butlins, Co. Meath.  He was also a very stylish footballer at both soccer and Gaelic, and was a prolific goal scorer with his educated left foot. He grew up at a time when Tubbercurry were winning regular underage County titles at all grades, including Minor and U-21, and he was always prominent in the forward lines. He was also making the Tubbercurry Senior team in the early 1980’s before he emigrated to New York for career opportunities in 1986. In New York he worked for 15 years as a carpenter and was very much part of the Irish Community while there. He also represented Real Tubber soccer team for many years and was always prominent as he modelled his soccer style on George Best.  John was always jolly and always had a smile on his face. He met the love of his life Rita at a friends wedding in Scotland in 2002 and after getting married, lived and worked in Scotland for the last 15 years.  His recent unexpected death was met with grief amongst all his football playing friends in Tubbercurry, and a number of close friends made the sad trip to Scotland to say farewell to John on behalf of Tubbercurry.  His burial took place in Cille Choirill Cemetery near Roy Bridge, Fort William, which is in the Scottish Highlands, a most beautiful and picturesque cemetery. His coffin carried the Tubbercurry GAA and Real Tubber Jersey, two teams he loved dearly.  A memorial Mass will be held in November in John’s memory, details to be announced later.  John is survived by his loving wife Rita, mother Evelyn, sisters Mary, Dorothy and Claire, brother James, in-laws, cousins, nephews, nieces and many close friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May his gently soul rest in peace.

Jackie O’Hara, Cloongoonagh
The recent death occurred of Jackie O’Hara, late of Cloongoonagh, Tourlestrane. In his late 70’s, Jackie was well known and respected by many throughout South Sligo and into Co. Mayo where he worked for many years.  As a young man growing up in the 1940’s and 50’s, he was sport mad and played Gaelic football through his young life, representing Tourlestrane and Sligo teams. He was also a hunting and fishing enthusiast, having grown up along the banks of the River Moy. He was a founding member of Tubbercurry Gun club when it was established in the early 1960’s. Jackie loved a game of poker and was part of a poker school in Cloongoonagh which was infamous for fun and late nights.  As a mature man, he was proud of his son Eamon when he exploded onto the County football scene in the mid 90’s, and in more recent years, he lived and loved to see his Grandchildren playing at top levels also. If he had lived a while longer he would have loved to see Tourlestrane put County Championship wins back to back as they did recently, with his son as Manager.  Jackie is survived by his loving wife Anne, daughters Ruth, Maree and Jacqueline, sons Derek and Eamon, brother Fr. Eamon, in-laws, cousins, neighbours and large circle of friends, all to whom sympathy is extended. May he rest in peace.

The annual Cock Pheasant of the Day Competition and Social for South Sligo takes place this Saturday night, November 4th from 9pm at the Border Collie Pub in Tourlestrane.  This is the 34th annual running of this event, and is run under the auspices of gun clubs from Tubbercurry and Cloonacool.  It is run as a charity fundraiser, and each year a Charity is chosen as beneficiary where good work has been done in the area. Beneficiaries in the past have included North West Hospice, Irish Heart Foundation, Multiple Sclerosis Association, Order of Malta, Diabetes Federation, Sligo Oncology Unit and other various schools and organisations at a local level.
