This year’s recent Irish Refrigeration Institute Awards night proved yet again that, of all the building services-related representative bodies, IRI is unique. It somehow manages to combine the serious matter of peer-vetted industry awards with a wonderfully-relaxed social occasion.

As always, a capacity attendance convened in the Crown Plaza Hotel, Santry in Dublin’s northside, for an evening of presentations, food, fun, entertainment and dancing into the early hours.

President Seamus Kerr and his committee deserve great credit for the format of the occasion, and especially for keeping speeches to a minimum. Indeed, there were no speeches as such, save perhaps for some of Seamus’ more obscure ramblings and observations!

It may be the refrigeration sector flagship event, but the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Well done to all involved in making it such a successful and enjoyable evening. Award winners were as follows:
