Winner of Special Forces Ultimate Hell Week to Share Formula for Success
‘Determination’ is Theme for Grace O Rourke talk at Network Ireland Limerick Event

The winner of RTE’s Special Forces: Ultimate Hell Week, Grace O Rourke, is the guest speaker at Network Ireland Limerick’s first event for 2020.  Taking place on 22 January at the Savoy Hotel Limerick, attendees will learn that there is truly no limit to what you can achieve with the right mindset and resolve.

Fitness and Mindset Coach Grace O Rourke will recall her extraordinary recent experience in winning the grueling eight-day program designed by former members of Ireland’s elite Special Forces unit, the Army Ranger Wing (ARW) – a selection process that in real life has a failure rate upwards of 90%.

Beating 24 other contestants, this remarkable achievement saw Grace become the only female in the history of the State to pass this level of formal military assessment of mental, physical and emotional endurance.

In sharing her story, Grace will also share her method for conquering challenges and how to push yourself further than you think you’re capable of going. Grace has been involved in several business ventures and a keen athlete and showjumper from an early age.


Ms. O’Rourke said, “Whether it be when competing in athletics or show-jumping; applying for the army after being rejected; taking on the challenge of starting a new business or pushing myself that extra mile when training, having a complete harmony and balance between mind and body is what has helped me to keep battling through.”

Petrina Hayes, President of Network Ireland Limerick, said, “Grace has an incredible story to tell. I heard her speak at the Network Ireland conference last September and know that attendees will be inspired by her inner strength and ‘can-do’ attitude. It promises to be an entertaining and inspiring evening.”

 Businesswomen throughout the Mid West are welcome to attend the event which is free for Network Ireland Limerick Members and €20 for non-members. The event starts with informal networking and refreshments at 6pm, Wednesday 22 January 2020 at the Savoy Hotel, Limerick
