Galway Chamber took home the “Most Successful Policy Campaign” for their campaign to ‘Get Galway Moving’ at the annual Chambers Ireland awards.

‘Get Galway Moving’ is a transport campaign started by Galway Chamber before the general election this year that aims to make the city a more liveable and economically viable place.

To do this it has targeted traffic congestion, transport sustainability, liveability, economic viability, and policy accountability as key areas to address.

Kenny Deery, CEO of Galway Chamber said that since this project launched last September at Leinster House, it has received the “support and endorsement” of many business and political leaders.

These are people who are all “seeking change to the way we move about our city,” he added.

“While this campaign will run for years, we are delighted that this work is recognised at a national level by Chambers Ireland.”

The Chambers Ireland annual Chambers awards provide a national platform for chambers to promote how they contribute to make their local area a better and more economically successful place.

Siobhan Kinsella, President of Chambers Ireland said these awards are “a celebration of of the work of local chamber and putting the local business that they represent at the heart of their communities”.

“These awards share a perspective on the work and active engagement that each chamber puts in with their local communities, amidst ongoing challenges and highlights the standards of excellence the Chamber network establishes as a whole supporting local business nationwide.”
