Three Castlebar businesswomen who won their categories in the Network Mayo Business Awards will take part in the national finals to be held in Drogheda, Co Louth today, Friday September 28. The Mayo winners were Sarah Flood (Snap Mayo, Castlebar ) in the Self Employed category, Siobhan Stenson (Cherry Blossom Bakery, Castlebar ) in the New Business category and Gerardine Lennon (Lough Lannagh Holiday Village, Castlebar ) in the Employee category. Good luck to all three in the finals.
Sarah Flood is managing director of Snap Mayo in Castlebar. Snap Mayo provides comprehensive digital and litho printing services including e-marketing, direct mail and point of sale material. A qualified graphic designer, she previously held the position of head of design with Elvery’s Sports.
Siobhan Stenson runs Cherry Blossom Bakery with her husband Simon. They identified a gap in the market for good quality, tasty artisan breads and cakes specifically catering for people with food intolerances. It started off as a niche market but has today blossomed into a recognised brand name in the west of Ireland supplying over 150 stores with products in nine counties.
Gerardine Lennon manages Lough Lannagh Holiday Village in Castlebar with her husband, Paul. She has outstanding academic qualifications and broad national and international experience in hotel management and catering in Ireland, the UK, and Bermuda.
Caroline Gordon, president of Network Mayo wished all three luck in the national awards, saying: “I’m very proud of our three Mayo winners and have every confidence that they will do well in the Network Ireland Business Women of the Year Awards.”
