A new website to promote business in Bunclody and district was officially launched in the River’s Edge, Bunclody, attended by local business owners and members of the public with the aim of showcasing the business community in Bunclody, promote the town as a great place to live and do business, and help local business owners to stay connected and up to date on what’s happening in the town.
Chief Executive Officer of Wexford County Council Tom Enright, speaking at the launch, stated that Bunclody Business is a great example of people coming together to promote their town. “I would like to commend the Bunclody Business team on the new website and the great work they are doing to help their local business community.”
Mr Enright said that County Wexford was undergoing significant change at present with close to €1 billion of investment in public infrastructure projects being delivered across the county. He added that the recent opening of the new Enniscorthy motorway bypass provides real opportunities to develop enterprise and economic activity in this part of the county and that the futures of Enniscorthy and Bunclody were closely linked together.
“With access to two motorways within 15 minutes, Bunclody is a well-connected town and has much to offer businesses in terms of its attractive setting, with particular opportunities to develop tourism into the future,” said Mr Enright.
Other speakers on the night included Caroline Tully and Helen Conway of Blackstairs Web Design, Caroline Kidd of Star Content, and Jean O’Connell of O’Connell Marketing. Business owners received a demonstration of the new website and were able to sign up on the night to get a free online listing for their business. The speakers also gave those assembled advice for getting online, writing content for websites, marketing their business and planning for 2020.
Bunclody Business has been set up by local business owners for local business owners under the auspices of Enniscorthy & District Chamber of Commerce and is supported by local Cllr Barbara-Anne Murphy and Enniscorthy Municipal District Council.
Cllr Murphy, who acted as master of ceremonies at the launch, said: “This website gives the approximate 400 businesses in the Bunclody area an opportunity to have an online presence and digital platform so that customers and potential clients can find them in a simple web search.
“We have businesses from sole traders to large companies featured on the website and I urge all business owners and managers in the area to log on to www.BunclodyBusiness.com and get their business details on this wonderful website.”
