Proudly Celebrating the Cork Convention Bureau Sporting Award of 2017
It is not often we get the opportunity to see Tommy Lawton in his finery but for the second time, our Munster Delegate and International events organiser was nominated as an Ambassador of Cork for the work involved in bringing the World Youth Angling Championships to the area this August. Tommy in conjunction with Inniscarra Lake Tourism Development Ltd and our Executive were instrumental in bringing this event to Ireland from the bidding process, venue development, funding and delivery and this is worthy recognition of all parties involved. At a glitzy black tie event organised by Cork Convention Bureau yesterday evening 33 events & conferences and their organisers were commended. With such a worthy line-up it came as a complete surprise to win one of the six overall category awards, The Cork Convention Bureau Sporting Award of 2017 in respect of the championships!
