The Connect Men of Kerry Awards follows in the footsteps of the  enormous success of the Connect Women In Business; Connect Hair and Beauty and the Connect Hospitality Awards.

Founder and owner of Connection Publications, Margaret Kissane, established the Men of Kerry Awards in direct response to demand from both men and women in the county who felt it was important to have an event that celebrated the achievements of Kerry men in the county, Ireland and internationally.

Kerry has produced many sporting heroes, entrepreneurs and social change advocates and the county has many unsung heroes who deserve recognition from their peers.  The night also promises to be a wonderful networking opportunity.

Tickets are priced at €90 (plus VAT) and include drinks reception, gala dinner, the awards ceremony and entertainment. The evening will be hosted by Margaret Kissane and mc’ed by John Drummey.

In addition to the main award categories, there are a number of Special Awards which will be announced on the night.

The judging panel is composed of business and community leaders from across the county and their decision is final. The event is on the day before International Men’s Day which celebrates worldwide the positive value men bring to the world, their families and communities.
