Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough, Alderman Glenn Barr, said: “I am delighted to launch this project as part of Our People, Our Place Our Story programme to celebrate the success of our businesses over the past 100 years. It’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase our businesses, while capturing memories, looking back through archives, exploring the history and seeing the development of our local business community.

“I look forward to seeing this project come to life, with businesses sharing their stories, reflecting on the past 100 years, how they have overcome many challenges, including the pandemic and what they have in store for the future. I strongly encourage our businesses to express an interest and get involved.”
