The awards - which were presented in the Mansion House  - are organised by the Local Enterprise Offices every year to celebrate Ireland's micro-enterprises.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said the winners at the awards ceremony were examples of the confidence, ambition and creative talent at Ireland's core.

He said that since the Local Enterprise Offices were established in 2014, they have supported in excess of 11,000 new jobs. 

"Unemployment has dropped from 15.4% to 6.4% in recent times and LEO offices have played their part in this. Jobs are now growing in every region in the country," Mr Kenny added.
