Barry Group among 'national champions'
Retail business the Barry Group, the plush Merrion Hotel in Dublin, and food business Dawn Meats are among the businesses that have been selected as Irish "national champions" in the 2015/16 European Business Awards.
The awards are designed to recognise "success, innovation and ethics" in European business.
Irish entrants were judged via an independent process and the "national champions" move forward to a public voting round. Barry Group boss Jim Barry said his business was "proud to represent Ireland and [the group's] extensive business associates".
