A Portlaoise man and a Rathdowney hair salon walked away with an All Star award from Croke Park recently.
The Hair House Salon in Rathdowney, owned and run by Portlaoise man Darren Farrell, was awarded their second award for ‘Business All Star One to Watch’.
Darren collected the award at a presentation held in Croke Park during the week which was sponsored by the All Ireland Business Foundation.
The Hair House was one of two businesses to get this award out of 70 businesses nationwide, and one of 90 Businesses who were up for awards out of 460 businesses in the entire country.
“This is such a prestigious award for us and the salon. To say I am overwhelmed with this award is an understatement,” said Darren.
He went on to thank his team, family and friends.
“Awards like this cannot be given without having a fantastic team behind them, Agnes and Teresa, and without our amazing clients that walk through the doors.
“To Derek my partner, my family and friends, for all their help in making my dream come true, and for their continued support and encouragement in making The Hair House reach the highest standards possible, on behalf of our clients, and progress in improving The Hair House become the successful business it has now achieved.
