Brexit and its potential effect on the economy was just one of the topics of conversation at a business talk in Killarney last week.

Businesses gathered in the Plaza Hotel on Thursday night, May 2, for the ‘Permanent tsb People in Business’ event which was organised by Permanent tsb Killarney, to highlight the business banking offering that they have for local businesses.

Guest speakers included Seán Kelly MEP, MD of Tricel Mike Stack, and Patrick Farrell, Retail Banking Director of Permanent tsb.

Among the topics discussed were Brexit and its potential effect on the economy around Killarney, the growth and success of Tricel Ltd., through the recession and since then, explained Niamh O’Carroll, Business Development Officer with Permanent tsb.

“Patrick Farrell, Retail Banking Director Permanent tsb, spoke about the importance of supporting the local business communities,” Niamh told the Killarney Advertiser.

“He also referred to the fact that Permanent tsb has approximately 100 staff who are mobile and can meet both personal and business customers alike at a time and a place that suits them, outside of normal branch opening hours.”

The event was well supported on the night with a large attendance, she added.

“There was a very positive reaction to the presentations on the night from the local business community.”
