Business Award for Trigon

Trigon Hotels claimed the top prize at the 66th Cork Business of the Year Awards.

Hosted by the Cork Business Association (CBA), the Large Business of the Year Award went to Trigon which operates The Metropole, Cork International and Cork Airport hotels. Roughty Foodie based in the English Market won the SME Business of the Year Award.

At the event, held in the Radisson hotel in Little Island, Manus O’Callaghan was named Champion of Cork for his dedication to promoting the city and its citizens through the Cork Person of the Month and Person of the Year Awards.

The awards are run in partnership with JCD, Centra, Peninsula Ireland and The Irish Examiner. They recognise the value and achievement of Cork businesses that survived, thrived and innovated over the past year and those who have contributed to the enhancement of the commercial, cultural and civic life of Cork.

Guests at the awards enjoyed a five-course “Taste Cork” dinner, which was a chef collaboration between The Radisson Blu Hotel, Cork’s Vienna Woods Hotel, Trigon Hotels, Barry’s of Douglas, The Carrigaline Court Hotel and The Blue Haven Collection Kinsale. It showcased the producers and growers in the Cork region and was paired with a selection of wines from Centra.
