Bernie Carroll of Student Programmes Ireland Ltd in Charleville secured two awards last Friday at the Limerick National Enterprise Business Awards for 2017, receiving the Entrepreneur of the Year trophy, and the award for Best Service Business. Bernie, along with her husband Joe, set up Student Programmes Ireland in 2009 to cater for the increased demand for international students coming to Ireland to improve their English language learning skills, and the business has gone from success to success over the years. Bernie will now represent Limerick in the All Ireland Final, in the Mansion House in Dublin in May.
