Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber FBD Business Awards 2017

Celebrating excellence in our community, these awards recognise the hard work and commitment of the people and businesses that make West Waterford such a wonderful place to live and work in.

Building on the reputation and success of previous years, our 2017 Business Awards will recognise achievement in 11 categories, with an overall Grand Prize sponsored by FBD Insurance worth €1000.
