galway daily news isme online event restart ireland for businesses after lockdown

An upcoming ISME panel discussion will focus on plans to reopen businesses in Ireland and the ways in which businesses and customers can work together in order to be compliant.

ISME’s CEO, Neil McDonnell will chair the ‘Restart Ireland’ conversation featuring Professor Luke O’Neill, Minister of State Robert Troy and Nuala Mulqueeney, Managing Director of the Aillwee Caves and Birds of Prey Centre in Co. Clare whose business has been closed due to lockdown.

The free online event event is open to ISME members and non-members and will take place on Friday April 23 from 12.30pm to 1.30pm.

“We are hopeful as we enter the final phase of the lockdown, that we should soon see a return to business for those many firms that have been forced to shut during the Level 5 lockdown,” said Neil McDonnell.

“However, the path to the full reopening for our hospitality, retail and grooming sectors is far from clear, and is subject to other factors such as vaccine rollout, infection rates, and hospital bed capacity.

At the Restart Ireland event, we will discuss the way ahead for the small business sector in Ireland as we exit the pandemic.”

This free webinar is open to all and those who register can include any questions they want to ask the panellists when they sign up. Register now on
