The 2016 Irish Security Industry Association (ISIA) awards took place on Saturday Night, 15th November. The awards ceremony was hosted in the elegant and majestic, Powerscourt Hotel in Enniskerry, Wicklow. Representatives from across the security industry gathered to recognise and celebrate those who demonstrated particularly excellent service over the past year.
We were proud to have 4 finalists at the prestigious event. NOONAN’s Danny Clarke, Mick Smyth and Henry Reidy won merit awards in the Security Officer, Event Security Person and Electronic Security Technician of the year categories, respectively. NOONAN’s Cronan Byrne was named the overall winner of the ISIA Electronic Security Supervisor of the Year category. Cronan has worked with NOONAN for over 8 years and is currently responsible for technical security for a key NOONAN client, who is one of the world’s largest and best known technology companies. In his role, Cronan is responsible for technical security throughout our client’s vast and highly secured facilities. Cronan also provides Tech support leadership for all of our client’s western EMEA sites. We congratulate our four award winners, who are all outstanding ambassadors of NOONAN.
As the Sponsor of the ISIA’s Premier Award, NOONAN had the honour of presenting the Paul Lynch Memorial Sculpture to this year’s worthy winners, the Crime Reporting Team of Independent News and Media. The award was accepted by ‘Sunday World’ Investigations Editor Nicola Tallant and INM Head of News, Jane Last on behalf of the INM crime team.
