Mr Byrne’s business was chosen as the Local Enterprise Office’s South Dublin business in the competition, while the winners will be announced during Showcase.

Colm Ward, Head of the Local Enterprise Office South Dublin said: “The new Local Enterprise Showcase is an ideal marketplace where buyers from around the world can meet local craftspeople and designers in person, helping small businesses get their big break.

“Our support for companies to be at Showcase is part of year-round supports offered from LEOs in local authorities to designers and craftspeople.

“These supports also include financial assistance, mentoring, business advice clinics and training programmes.”
