Newry Chamber Launches Employee and Team Awards To Celebrate Greater Newry’s Greatest

Newry Chamber has announced details of their Employee & Team Awards.

Entries are NOW OPEN and businesses and organisations in the Greater Newry Area are encouraged to nominate across the 22 categories.

The Awards are open to members and non-members of Newry Chamber, organisations can enter up to a maximum of four categories and the closing date for entries is Friday 9th August at midnight with the Gala Awards Ceremony taking place on Thursday 26th September at the Canal Court Hotel.

The Newry Chamber Employee & Team Awards are designed to celebrate ‘Greater Newry’s Greatest’ by recognising our greatest assets, our people. Our employees are the lifeblood of local businesses and organisations across the Greater Newry Area and we invite you to show your appreciation by submitting entries.

If you have an employee or team that has displayed exemplary performance or made a significant contribution to your business or organisation, the Newry Chamber Employee & Team Awards are a great way to say thank you.


The Newry Chamber launches the employee and team awards which will be presented at the Gala Awards Night in the Canal Court Hotel on Thursday 26th September. Nominations need to be submitted by Friday 9th August 2024.

Edwina Flynn, President of Newry Chamber said: “The Employee & Team Awards hold a special place for me, as this is the perfect opportunity to really recognise our people.

“I often say to my own team, that leaders are only as good as their team.

“I know all business owners will agree with me when I say, if it wasn’t for the work, commitment and loyalty of our employees, we would never have made it through the last couple of difficult years.”

“Now, is the time to recognise the talent within our own organisations. These Awards are a fantastic way in which to celebrate our teams, our star performers and to role model the behaviour and culture we wish to be emulated, developed and grown within our organisations.”

“Addressing the recruitment and skills shortages is one of the biggest challenges businesses but we must share our many good news stories and promote the quality roles and career paths available in the Greater Newry Area.” 

“I strongly encourage you to nominate your colleagues and teams in these Awards.

“It really is worth the time and effort to submit entries for the recognition the person or team will get and appreciate, as well as the overall feel-good factor and sense of pride for the business and colleagues.”

Michael Savage, CEO of Newry Chamber added: “The Awards could simply not happen without the generous support of our Category Sponsors.

“So we would like to thank them all: ABP Food Group, Newry BID, U105, MJM Marine, Collins Aerospace, Gray Design Ltd, Digney Grant Insurance, Newry Reporter, Bank of Ireland UK, Canal Court Hotel, Newry Credit Union, Jack Murphy Jewellers, Newry Democrat, DELI LITES Ireland, AbbeyAutoline, S&W Wholesale, FD Technologies, O’Hare & McGovern Ltd, Southern Regional College, Translink and The Exact Group.”
