BUSINESS ties with Fingal and the United States were celebrated in style on Independence Day earlier this month with a traditional Fourth of July barbecue in Swords.

The Wright venue was turned into a little corner of the United States on the July 4 as Fingal Dublin Chamber of Commerce held a roof-top garden party 'to acknowledge the importance and positive contribution of US companies to Fingal and to Ireland'.

Austin McCabe, VP & Managing Director, Symantec Ireland was the guest speaker.

Austin is a former President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ireland and spoke of his first-hand knowledge of the economic benefits that US companies bring to Fingal in providing thousands of high skilled and well-paid jobs directly and indirectly.

Mayor of Fingal, Kieran Dennison also spoke of the great contribution made by US companies to Ireland and in particular to the local economy in Fingal.

Chamber President Siobhan O'Donnell Moore thanked Austin McCabe for his thought provoking and informative speech which was enjoyed by over 130 attendees at the event.

Siobhan was also very pleased to welcome Gina Piccardo from SanDisk who present and who is from Silicon Valley in California.

The chamber president said: 'The attendees enjoyed beautiful barbecue food with a cool drink in on a wonderful sunny evening on the stunning panoramic roof-top terrace of the Wright Venue in great company with other business women and men enjoying the social side of business.

'It proved to be a very positive evening and is something we will be looking at as an annual event.'
