Being able to operate outside of your comfort zone may be a key requirement in business, but some took that idea to the extreme when they attended a Business After Hours event in the International Outdoor Adventure Centre, hosted by Wexford Chamber.

Intrepid high flyers found themselves, literally, on high wires when they took on the challenge of the High Ropes park, Jacob's Ladder, and plenty of other team challenges in what was a fun-filled evening of networking.

Chamber CEO Enda Kavanagh said that upwards of 60 people enjoyed the evening with teams from various different businesses trying their hand at the activites on offer.

'Some people were definitely outside of their comfort zone, especially those who were afraid of heights but it was great fun, and a novel way of meeting new people by having a conversation with them when you're both halfway up a ladder!'

The weather looked favourably on the group who enjoyed a tour of the facilities on offer which Ms Kavanagh said were 'second to none'.

'The IOAC is a great asset to the county from a tourism point of view but it's also a great place to go if you want to do something different. Personally, I want to stay in the glamping village!'

The IOAC is owned and run by Adrian and Carmel Tennant. Based in Tagoat, the centre opened in June 2017 and is a bespoke holiday and day tripper destination. It also has camping grounds and a glamping village, geared towards facilitating Scouts and Guides.
