  • So the annual Sccul enterprise awards took place last Friday in The Bailey Allen Hall @NUIG and Gavin Duffy of Dragons Den was the invited celebrity. Lots of diverse stalls filled the room and was great to network as a newbie to this arena. Met some familiar faces and was delighted, not only that fellow Ballinaslovians Padraig Fahy and Ní Bhríon of Beechlawn Organic Farm were set up in tall next to me, but also that they won their category outright! I set up some samples of the range of techniques and candles am currently trying out and the response was altogether very positive, everyone loved to come touch the products which is a testament to how different they look compared to regular candles. Got some great feedback, tips and suggestions, and altogether was put at ease with all the positivity. The entourage from Creative Enterprise class @ GMIT came along for some moral support and was great to have more familiar faces around me, and also some extra hands to help me pack up. That was brill as the feet were sore at that stage. Look forward to put all the suggestions into practice now and come back next year a bit more established.
