Barry Battle, Managing Director.
Barry started Event Bars in 2004 and since then the company has grown from strength to strength. He now splits his time between our four depots, Dublin, Galway, Cork and Sligo and is always on the go. When asked about his favourite project or venture, he says:
“My favourite time of year is definitely Race Week in Galway in July and that Bank Holiday weekend, as we would always have 5 or 6 wedding set-ups nationwide as well as all the bars we install for the Races. We install all of the external bars and refrigeration for the Clayton Hotel and we also have bars in the G Hotel, the Clybaun Hotel and the Radisson Blu.It’s a very challenging week for everyone, between the Logistical team and the office staff. Just when we think we have everything down to a “T” someone calls and changes an order or a delivery time and puts everything out of sync!
We always get there in the end and despite the pressure it’s really satisfying when the week is over and everything has run smoothly.”
Ray Garvey, Dublin Sales Manager.
Ray loves it when he is busy with lots of events at the same time and finds it so rewarding when all the hard work has paid off and the events go really well. His favourite project was an event he did for Electric Media. He is a keen golfer and skier. He tries to play golf once a week and hits the slopes in Austria every year. Call him on 087-7777585!
Jonathan Murphy, Cork Sales Manager.
Jonathan moved to Cork in 2014. His favourite events are marquee weddings, as the South-West offers some of the most scenic locations. Working in these idyllic places is very rewarding and seeing the customers reaction is very satisfying. He is a huge rugby fan, enjoys a round of golf and plays badminton regularly. Call him on 021-4966073!
