Sixteen year old Jamie Keaveney is to be commended for his bright businesses idea by AIB as part of their focus on young entrepreneurs.

Jamie’s father, Paul Keaveney told the Leitrim Observer his son will feature in a new magazine publication by AIB, which has just gone to print and showcases young entrepreneurs around the country.

Jamie started up the website: www.skatenutter.com with the help of his father and sells skateboards and accessories on it. The website offers skateboards, parts, accessories and skater merchandise. Jamie sources the items from America, China and the UK. Paul Keaveney said business is going “slowly” at the moment but that is down to no funding for marketing and advertising.

It is hoped the inclusion in the young entrepreneurs feature will help Jamie’s profile. Jamie is also heavily involved in the project to construct a skatepark in Drumshanbo.
