“Yes there will be people left disappointed on the day but we must remember, these are businesses who have shown strength and determination during the worst of times. Whether they win their category or not, they are being acknowledged for that and must be congratulated. The judges had a very tough job this year, but we thank them for their professionalism and dedication under the stewardship of Noel Kelly.”
