best for business and give business a voice within Dún
Laoghaire-Rathdown, as the largest business organisation in the
county.

Brian is supported by a Chamber Council made up of experienced and
committed people who come from a range of separate specialist business

on the Board Executive, as well as PRO.

this term are Nigel Craughwell, GM of The Royal Marine Hotel Dun

keeping the Chamber membership informed of relevant changes to
business and law regarding matters that may affect, either positively
or negatively, on their business operations while also affording
opportunities for the membership to attend relevant seminars and
briefings, integrated into our Events Calendar, including our
Motivational Mondays and other Networking Events.
