Notes to Editor

Causeway was established in January 2016 by a group of business people from Ireland and Scotland, who believe that enhancing communication and building relationships between individuals and organisations from both countries will add significant value to their business. Causeway provides a robust platform for businesses in both countries to connect and share opportunities and knowledge.


The decision by British voters to leave the Single European Market further emphasised the need for a business exchange to help retain and further drive the strong cultural and economic connections between Ireland and Scotland. At Causeway, we pride ourselves on running effective, relevant and thought provoking events across industry sectors in both countries.
