The new president of Mullingar Chamber of Commerce says that she wants to get some “young blood” into the organisation.

Allyson English took over from outgoing president John Geoghegan on March 7, and, speaking to the Westmeath Examiner, she said one of the first things she wants to do is reach out to the town’s new generation of entrepreneurs.

“Where I’d like to take it is the younger generation, we are missing a trick there, we really are. I look at the businesses around the town and I have rubbed shoulders with some of the owners at women in business events – they are the ones that we want to get in.

“These are the next generation. They are the ones that will take the chamber forward. That doesn’t mean we take the onus off the members already there by any manner or means, but we need to get some young blood in there as well.”
