Our industry has annual sales in excess of 2billion and we employ 64,000 people. In fact we are the largest employer within the Irish Tourism Sector. So tonight at these awards we are celebrating winning cuisines, great restaurateurs and chefs who have brought international recognition and accolades to the Irish restaurant industry."
