*One of the main recommendations in the Athy Regeneration Plan commissioned by the Athy Enterprise Network and published late last year was that an ongoing enterprise awareness programme should be organised as a monthly structured event to encourage Local Enterprise and Commerce in the town. The Athy Enterprise Network is made up of representatives of the Athy Lions Club, Athy Enterprise Company, Kildare County Council and Kildare Leader Partnership. The Athy Enterprise Network now hosts the monthly networking meetings in association with North Kildare Chamber who facilitate similar events elsewhere in the county.
