Cork is home to Ireland's Best News Media Platform (Irish Enterprise Awards 2021). And it's CorkBeo!
As we gear up to mark Cork Beo's second anniversary, we found out that EU Business News named the site 'Best News Media Platform' in this year's Irish Enterprise Awards. We couldn't have asked for a better birthday present!
The awards programme has been going for four years, showcasing exemplary Irish business and recognising the enterprises that are thriving across the entirety of Ireland.
Regardless of how large or small a business may be, all nominees in the awards were judged purely on merit to ensure that only the most deserving are acknowledged. And Cork Beo made the cut!
It's the first time a Reach media brand has been recognised in the awards.
Speaking about the winners recognised as part of this programme, Awards Coordinator Katherine Benton commented:
“Congratulations to all the winners of the Irish Enterprise Awards. It is with great pride and joy that we showcase the best of the best from across the entirety of Ireland.
"Whilst it is an understatement to say that the last year has been a challenging one, the COVID-19 pandemic has also been a catalyst for immense change. There have been times of uncertainty which has forced a colossal transformation of global business, however, many Irish enterprises and businesses have achieved great things despite the obstacles facing them. Ultimately, every success – whether a minor victory or major achievement – should be celebrated as an extraordinary accomplishment given these unprecedented times.
“I hope our deserving winners have a wonderful rest of 2021 ahead.”
Editor of Cork Beo, Joe O'Shea said: “The team here at CorkBeo are delighted with the recognition for our efforts over the past year and this second award for our title, following on from the Cork Digital Marketing Awards just months after we went live.
“It's been a very challenging year for Cork in so many ways, but we are proud that we have kept the people of Cork informed and up to date on everything that is happening across the city and county because, without our readers, this award wouldn't be ours.
“I also want to use this opportunity to really thank the team, there's just the five of us - Gavin, Frances, Rebecca and our newest team member Eimer - who, along with the commercial team, this award is really for as we now focus on the very positive times ahead.”
