A Dundrum-based streetwear fashion label, set up by an engineer and an artist, has taken the top prize at the Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Enterprise Awards for 2010 held on Tuesday,September 14th.

The independent menswear brand, Counter Propaganda, was amongst seven shortlisted businesses in the annual County finals. The business represented the county at the National Enterprise Awards held in the Shelbourne Hotel in November 2010.

Co-founders, Richard Doody and Fergal Swann, design and distribute men's casual-wear . The company trades from outlets in St. Stephen's Green, Liffey Valley and Blanchardstown shopping centres and sells to stores in Ireland, the UK, Romania and Japan.

"Counter Propaganda are successfully growing their fashion label business, both nationally and internationally, despite difficult trading conditions in retail." said Michael Johnson, CEO of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Enterprise Board. "They've managed to extend their menswear range, increase the number of the international stockists and open up new retail outlets in Ireland within the last twelve months alone," he added.

An Cathaoirleach, Cllr Lettie McCarthy, was guest of honour at the awards which took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Stillorgan.

Each year, the County & City Enterprise Boards across Ireland stage the National Enterprise Awards competition to recognise the entrepreneurial talent of micro-enteprise owners.
