Given that we received over four hundred entries to this year’s series, including many from Laois, it is fair to say that our expert judging panel had a momentous task in selecting the winners and runners-up in each category. The talent, innovation and ambition showcased by Ballykilcavan was inspiring to all who were part of the judging process”.

On behalf of all at Digital Business Ireland, our partners and members, I would like to thank every single one of the four hundred entrants for taking the initiative and getting involved in the process. We also wish to extend our most heartfelt congratulations to Ballykilcavan who have demonstrated excellence in digital”.
