Derek Reilly and Brendan Hegarty of Erris Chamber of Commerce.
It was with great pleasure that outgoing President Derek Reilly handed over the title to local Kiltane Businessman Brendan Hegarty at the AGM of the Erris Chamber of Commerce recently. Derek has been President of the Erris Chamber for the past 9 years and has not totally stepped down from the organisation but is now the PRO. Derek wishes Brendan, and all the new appointed positions, the best of luck for the coming months and Years.

At the May meeting of the Erris Chamber the following items were discussed:

  • The Chamber is to meet with the new Belmullet based Superintendent to discuss working partnerships between the business community and local businesses in the coming weeks.
  • A number of working sub committees have been set up to restart the work done by the Chamber over the past number of years. Groups will be focusing on issues such as the sewerage scheme for Belmullet, the R312 to Castlebar, Broadband/Internet upgrade for Erris and the Community Futures project. If you would like to become active in any of these areas please contact the Chamber Office on 097-20977 or errischamber@eircom.net.
  • Other items discussed included the relaunch of a community based monthly newsletter carrying local news items and upcoming events.
  • Finally the upgrading of the Chamber website is also a top priority with the discussion of including an A to Z listing of all business services in the Erris Area. Members of the Chamber avail of a listing for free. Check out errischamber.ie
