Network Ireland Limerick, in association with AIB 106 O’Connell Street, Limerick, will host a special event to mark International Womens Day on 8 March with guest speakers Josephine Feehily and Joy Neville.  The free event is open to women in business, the professions and the arts in the mid-west.

Josephine Feehily is Chairperson of the new independent Policing Authority.  The Limerick woman previously held the position of Chairperson of the Revenue Commissioners, a position she was appointed to in 2008, and remained in until the end of 2014.  She was the first woman to hold the position.

Grand Slam winner Joy Neville, from Limerick City, earned 70 caps playing rugby for Ireland. She broke new ground last season when she was named assistant referee for the European Challenge Cup game between Bath and Bristol, making her the first female official in European rugby and since then took charge of an Ulster Bank League Division 1A game.




Both guest speakers will share their story on how they broke traditional expectations and what drives them to succeed.  The evening will also focus on networking so that attendees can make new connections and learn from each other.

This event is open to women (members and non-members). Taking place on Wednesday, March 8, from 6pm until 8pm, places are limited, so early booked is advised. 

Network Ireland Limerick provides a forum where women in business, the professions and the Arts can exchange business ideas and increase their business contacts. It encourages women to achieve more satisfying careers and promotes women as worthy contributors to the Irish economy. Network Ireland Limerick is a branch of Network Ireland, a national organisation driving the personal and professional development of women with over 500 members and 11 branches through the country.
