The Gorey Awards came about as an effort from 2 local people to promote businesses / companies / charities / groups / associations and people in the North Wexford area that should be recognised for their roles in making Gorey & North Wexford a great place to work and live.
Gorey Awards Limited was born in 2019 out of a feeling that Gorey and its community needed a vehicle to spotlight the great and good in our area and give them their 15 minutes of fame ! The idea was always in the mind of Dave Howick of FHM Accountants who moved to Gorey in 2005 with an expansion of his accounting business from Bray. Together with Philip Cullen they setup the original Gorey Awards.
Dave Howick later stepped away and Dave Jordan took over his role. GoreyAwards.com was then created by Dave Jordan of Cada Media Ltd. and a public voting system was added to allow the general public to have their say.
Philip Cullen of Southeast Mortgages & Financial Services is the other half of this dynamic duo and brings to the team a vast amount of experience in networking, business & finance and is a native of Gorey.
Cada Media Ltd and Southeast Mortgages and Financial Services are part of the Gorey Business Network, a networking group made up of local businesses, whose members all support and help run the awards in various ways including selling tickets, selling sponsorships, judging panel.
