One of the guests was Seán Coughlan of Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, who mentioned their awards ceremony, which is taking place this evening in The Morrison Hotel in Dublin.

On the same day as my local newspaper featured several reports on local charitable projects, The Ernst and Young Entrepreneur Challenge – or ‘Entrepreneurs in Africa’ – as I previously referred to it, made compelling viewing on RTE.

Assisted by Goal’s charismatic leader, John O’ Shea, Jerry Kennelly had ten days to set up Create Africa, a charitable business based in Nairobi.

The next instalment should be equally interesting.

A new series is due to begin on RTE later this month, which will be compulsive viewing for me.

Entrepreneurs in Africa begins on August 17.
