I was delighted to officially open the 'Who to Talk to' Event which was organised by Tipperary Local Enterprise Office and held in LIT Thurles. 

This event is an excellent example of collaboration and collective effort. Tipperary County Council in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland, the Education & Training Board, LIT, Local Development Companies, Teagasc and the Local Enterprise Office came together to repeat the successful ‘Who To Talk To’ initiative which is now in it’s third year. 

The Who To Talk To event acts as a catalyst to individuals considering self employment and provide an opportunity for existing businesses to network and hear about supports and finance available.  There were over 42 information desks/stands at the event providing information and advice to those considering setting up a new business or expanding an existing business, as well as a funding workshop which featured a series of short presentations on supports from Enterprise Ireland, Bord Bia, InterTrade Ireland, Department of Social Protection, Fáilte Ireland, Microfinance, Tipperary County Council and the Local Enterprise Office.

On Friday last I was delighted to visit St Anne's School in Tipperary Town where I raised a green flag. This flag was my first green flag as Minister, it was also the first Green flag for St. Anne’s.  It was great to meet the students and staff at the school.  I have no doubt that the school will be successful in its quest for more green flags.
