Did you all hear?
February is for match making. In February, we were matched. Our partnering is with Kilcullen Kapital and Partner Enda O’Coineen, businessman/entrepreneur--he's the man who brought the Volvo Ocean Race 2008/09(and again, 2011/12 as Finish Port!) to Galway, Ireland.
O’Coineen, founder and publisher of Irish titles Afloat and Security in the 1980s, announced the partnership with Irish Quilting as an insightful investment and adventure into the growth of the Irish Quilting magazine and into a sustainable textiles/publishing market open to employment opportunities and regional expansion abroad, both areas being a promising pursuit for Irish businesses.
“We’re taking a strong product and brand and making it stronger. Within our
organisation, Irish Quilting will have the means for promotion and expansion it needs to become a leading Irish brand in the existing $3.58 billion yearly quilting industry of America.”
We are enthusiastic about our new opportunities and the support of Enda O’Coineen and Kilcullen Kapital. We believe we have found the right people to take our business to the next level because they have the expertise and the resources, including a commitment to serving our readers while promoting the best of Ireland.
How can you not be excited about that?
