CONGRATULATIONS to Dick O’Sullivan of Punchestown Racecourse who was the recipient of the prestigious Kildare Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Contribution to Business Award at a ceremony in Killashee Hotel last Friday week, November 29th.

As you can well imagine if you have spent two minutes in the man’s company, O’Sullivan’s acceptance speech entertained and enthralled the 440 strong audience as he spoke about his varied career from qualifying as a veterinary surgeon, to his days in Mexico and Brazil with Kerry Group and finally landing his “dream job at the age of 62” at the home of Irish jump racing.
