Four Donegal companies have achieved a quality mark signifying they meet the highest standards of service and trust.

Bundoran’s Donegal English Language School and Letterkenny-based Children’s fitness firm Rinka were awarded the coveted All-Ireland Business All-Star Accreditation at Croke Park.

Also accredited were Ballyliffin bistro Nancy’s Barn and AWS Tyres at Quigley’s Point.

All-Star Accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria.

The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the Kenny Business School at the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.

Dr Hynes said the accreditation, which is now held by 300 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.
