Lord Mayor's Reception for Armatile
On Friday evening a Lord Mayor's Reception was hosted by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Council to honour Mr & Mrs McCann achievements during Armatile's 40 years in business.
The event took place in the beautifully restored Primate's Palace in Armagh.
During the reception Lord Mayor, Cllr. Gareth Keating, spoke of Mr & Mrs McCann's contribution to the local industry with Armatile; both economically in relation to job creation in the Council district and socially in relation to their support of local community groups.
He congratulated them and Armatile on all the achievements they have made and acknowledged the Lifetime Achievement Award recently bestowed on Mr McCann by the UK Tile Association.
Mr McCann thanked the Lord Mayor and Council for hosting the evening and spoke about the contribution of so many people who have helped Armatile during the past 40 years; for without them all Armatile would not have succeeded and grown into the business it is today.
He thanked them sincerely and hoped Armatile's journey would continue for many, many years to come.
