Jobs Expo is delighted to announce that the South Dublin Chamber will be exhibiting at our next Dublin event on 22 October.
A group of local business people established the Chamber in 1984. Their aim was to help develop the local business community. Instrumental in setting up the Chamber were Kevin Molloy of the Molloy Group, Joe Gallagher, Bank of Ireland, Tallaght, Noel McElhatton of Johnson & Johnson and Brian O’Reilly of BP O’Reilly & Co.
In 1995 the Chamber changed its name to South Dublin Chamber. It became the second Chamber in Ireland to receive accreditation under the CCI quality programme in 1996. A few short years later, in 1999, the Chamber purchased Tallaght Business Centre. It has since become a successful commercial concern. They were named Ireland’s Chamber of the Year in 2003. The same year they represented Ireland as a finalist in the World Chamber Competition in Canada. In 2005, they celebrated their 21st year as a leading Chamber and ‘The Voice of Business in South Dublin.’ Over the years, and to today, the South Dublin Chamber gives a voice to local business.
The Chamber’s Mission
The Chamber’s mission is to support the growth and development of their member companies. They do this through relevant representation, networking and service provision.
Working in partnership with other agencies and private businesses, the Chamber has had many successes. These include:
- Obtaining tax-designated status for the Tallaght Town Centre leading to the construction of The Square Shopping Centre
- Locating and building of the Institute of Technology, Tallaght
- The development of a Regional Teaching Hospital at Tallaght
- The location of the National Digital Park in Citywest
- South Dublin Chamber is the only Irish business organisation to have achieved National, European and World awards for its work
