What makes Ennis great? There are many answers to this question but number one has to be: our people. We are friendly (seriously – we’ve won national awards for our friendliness), we are welcoming, we’re never short of a story or time for a chat and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Mind you, life on an urban island only three metres (10ft) above sea level does tend to keep you grounded! Experience Ennis
