The Success that is Cerebreon

CerebreonCerebreon Technologies was set up a number of years ago by Kenneth Doherty and his wife Jill Doyle and what a wonderful success story they have developed. Two amazingly astute individuals had from their college days an ambition to set up their own business and, great for Ardara, they wanted to do it here.For a young company, it is startling the number of awards Cerebreon has won at National Level. Today, Cerebreon has its head quarters at Pearse Road, Ardara, and last week took on their seventh employee. What a great story right in the heart of Ardara and as a community, we need more people with the initiative of Kenneth and Jill and hopefully their success will convince more of our young people to come back and set up business and home in Ardara.
