A slew of Cork’s best-known businesses are among the finalists of the 2018 Cork Business of the Year Awards, it was revealed recently.

The Cork Business Association (CBA) announced the finalists last Friday and they included the likes of K O’Connell Fishmongers, Nano Nagle Place and Hassett’s Bakery.

The overall winners will be announced at a gala awards night on 23 February at Clayton Hotel Silversprings.

The awards recognise the outstanding contribution of businesses and individuals working diligently across varied sectors of business in Cork city and its environs. They are judged by an independent panel of judges.

Commenting on the finalists, Chief Executive of Cork Business Association Lawrence Owens said: “This year we received a record number of entrants and I would like to congratulate each of our very deserving finalists. To be a finalist is a wonderful achievement, and I wish everyone the best of luck on the night. I would like to thank all of our sponsors, in particular our award sponsor JCD, event partner AIB, and media partner The Irish Examiner.”
