Retaining our office in SkyCourt means that we can maintain the link with the retail community, the commercial heart of Shannon.“It’s a new era for the Chamber; a time to plan for bigger and greater in the next decade. Our founding board set the foundations for what we are and where we are today and it’s at a time like this that I get the opportunity, on behalf of the board, to thank our founders, most especially, Michael Guinee, chairman, CEO and founder of Ei Electronics and Paddy Purcell, chairman and founder of Mincon, for their entrepreneurial foresight; both continue to take a great interest in what we do and were very supportive of this expansion,” added Ms Downes.Shannon Chamber chief executive Helen Downes and president Julie Dickerson (front row) with Ray O’Driscoll and Matthew Thomas of the Shannon Group and membrrs of Shannon Chamber board .Welcoming the Chamber to Shannon Airport House, Ray O’Driscoll, managing director, Commercial Properties, Shannon Group plc said: “They arrive at an exciting time in Shannon Commercial Properties’ journey as we regenerate the Free Zone and rebrand our €25 million first phase redevelopment as Gateway West in the Shannon Free Zone. We look forward to working with them to promote all that is great about Shannon for FDI, SMEs and entrepreneurs. Their strategic positioning, as the first point of contact in our newly established Gateway Hub at Shannon Airport House and at the heart of the Free Zone, will serve as a beacon to new and expanding enterprise.”More business news here Email Linkedin Facebook Midsummer Fairways for Shannon Chamber Members last_img read more

Unique Trinity Beach home takes waterfront living to a new level

first_imgMore from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms3 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns3 days agoThe home has attracted interest from domestic and overseas buyersSet on more than 2900sq m, 1-3 Wilma St features “supreme” ocean views and privacy.Selling agent Nicholas Slatyer of Belle Property Group said it was among the “top handful of beachfront blocks in Cairns”.“The house is elevated, alleviating some people’s fears of storm surges and the effects of global warming,” he said.“We are halfway through the expressions of interest campaign and have had reasonable interest from local and interstate buyers.“These sorts of opportunities rarely come up and many of these beachfront properties have been occupied for a long time.”Offers in excess of $3 million have been suggested, but Mr Slatyer said the vendor was willing to meet the market.“Ultimately I think the buyer will renovate the existing house or knock it over and start again,” he said. “The home is very nice and in great condition, but it’s also quite old.” The property is for sale by formal offer, closing May 24. 1-3 Wilma St, Trinity BeachA SPECTACULAR Far North beachfront property is on the market, giving would-be buyers a rare chance to live out the ultimate tropical dream.The five-bedroom mansion at 1-3 Wilma St is just a short stroll from the famous sands of Trinity Beach.In fact, the property’s title extends to the high-water mark, allowing its owner to literally lay claim to their personal slice of beach.The sale comes following the death last year of the home’s long-standing owner Marie Parker (nee Van Hove), a renowned opera pianist.Mrs Parker’s late husband David was a top-flight singer and spent many years teaching at the ANU School of Music in Canberra.The couple’s influential role in the Australian opera scene was highlighted by an article written in the ANU Reporter following Mr Parker’s death in 1996: “After the demise of Canberra Opera in 1984 he and his wife … established the ANU Opera Workshop to provide opera experience for local singers, mounting small-scale but professionally executed productions of baroque operas in the ANU Arts Centre”. It is understood the talented duo bought the Trinity Beach property as their retirement home, with many of their prominent musician friends visiting over the years. Mrs Parker was 89 when she died on October 30.last_img read more
