Yvonne McKeon from the Stradbally-based McKeon Stone was recently elected as the new president of Laois Chamber Alliance.

This is a new merger of the Laois Chamber of Commerce and Laois Tourism which was officially put in place at the AGM in historic surrounds of Ballykilcavan Farm and Brewery near Stradbally last week.

Ms McKeon stepped up from the role of vice-president and took over from Alison Browne of Gerry Browne Jewellers who had been in the position for the past 12 months.

James McElwee from Rolleston-McElwee Solicitors is the new vice-president, and is set to take over as president this time next year.

Fiona Hyland from the Gandon Inn is the new treasurer, taking over Conor McGarry of Powerpoint Engineering who had been in the position since Laois Chamber was re-formed back in 2019.

While Tom Clowry, a representative from Laois Tourism, is now secretary replacing Martin Crowley.
