I am looking forward to working closely with Chamber CEO, Anthony Cooney to further strengthen our business voice in the region through increased membership and consolidation with other business groups.

Outgoing President, Guy Thompson said he was delighted to represent the Chamber for the past two years. “It has been a great privilege and a wonderful experience to represent businesses in Fingal. I was particularly pleased to be part of the British Ambassador’s visit to Fingal and the Taiwan Ambassador’s business breakfast last year. I would like to thank Paul Reid and his team in Fingal County Council for their support during my term as president.
“I want to pay tribute to the Chamber Board of Directors, CEO, Council Members and Chamber staff who are so committed and passionate in growing and developing the Chamber.
