West Cork Business & Tourism Awards 2019

West Cork Business & Tourism Awards 2019

We’ve had quite a year here in McCarthy + Co. Solicitors. From our delight at our Business All-Star accreditation back in March, to our win at the Irish Law Awards in June. We then got word that we had been shortlisted for not one but TWO awards at the West Cork Business & Tourism awards 2019.

Now in its second year, the West Cork Business & Tourism awards recognise and celebrate excellence in business and tourism across the region.  Created by The Southern Star, in partnership with Cork County Council and associate sponsor AIB Cork, the awards span 11 different categories.

For the awards, a total of one hundred and forty entries were narrowed down to a shortlist of just thirty-five. And we were thrilled to be included in two categories; Best Marketing Initiative and Best Use of Digital.

The Awards

The awards ceremony took place with a special Gala Awards Dinner at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa Hotel on Friday 29th November and what a great event it was. The cream of West Cork was in attendance and it was a true honour to be amongst them all.

We had a great evening and to be shortlisted as a finalist was simply fantastic, but to actually go and win the award for Best Marketing Initiative was the icing on the cake.

The award was directly related to the launch of our new online Conveyancing Cost Calculator. An easy to use online tool that will provide a quote for all additional costs involved in the purchase or sale of a home directly to your inbox.

We will now place this award pride of place next to our other accolades and use as motivation to continue to improve and innovate so that we are always delivering the best possible service to our clients.
