Following on from the Budget 2020 announcement on Tuesday last, October 8, by Minister for Finance Paschal Donohue, there was an early start as members of Mullingar’s business community gathered in the Greville Arms Hotel on Wednesday morning for Mullingar Chamber’s Budget breakfast briefing. The event, sponsored by AIB, is always a popular networking event and always well attended.
Julia Dalton, CEO, Mullingar Chamber, began proceedings for the event by welcoming all those attending and thanked businesses for their continued support of the Mullingar Chamber and its initiatives in helping to promote the town.
Miles Gillespie, branch manager, AIB, highlighted the supports available from the bank to help customers prepare for Brexit and urged businesses to ensure they are ready.
The summary of Budget 2020 was presented by John O’Connell and Joe McDonnell from Stephens Cooke & Associates, who summarised the measures that have been put in place for the coming year in a budget that seemed to be influenced by the increasing likelihood of a no-deal Brexit.
Stephens Cooke & Associates had worked late into the night on Tuesday evening preparing the presentation and budget summary booklet that attendees could take away with them after the event. The Greville Arms Hotel, as always, provided top class hospitality for guests and the event ran with impeccable timing, meaning everyone was back at their desks in time to start the day’s work on Wednesday morning.
