Over 350 people packed the Inishowen Gateway Hotel, to find out who won at the inaugural Buncrana Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. A fantastic night was enjoyed by all, and the participants really got into the spirit of the event.
TV3's Noel Cunningham was the MC for the night, and Dragon's Den star Peter Casey was the guest speaker. And at last, we can reveal who the winners were!
