‘Working Better Together’ Theme for Network Ireland Limerick March Event

9 March 2018: AIB’s Head of Business Banking, Catherine Moroney, and local author Roisin Meaney, are the keynote speakers for a special Network Ireland Limerick event which will take place in AIB’s 106 O’Connell Street branch, Limerick on March 22, 2018. 

The AIB-sponsored event is free and open to all women in business, the professions and the arts in the Mid-west.




Both speakers will talk to the theme ‘Working Better Together’.  Catherine Moroney, Head of Business Banking, AIB, will explain why Ireland as a country needs to work together to ensure we are prepared for post-Brexit and continued prosperity.  She will also call on women in business to work better together as they press for progress in terms of equality.

Limerick author Roisin Meaney, who is an advocate for random acts of kindness, will share her success story to date and encourage women to be kinder to each other as they support each other to achieve things they could not do alone.

She is a fan of cats, chocolate, baking, and kindness. With a friend, she manages the Random Acts of Kindness Limerick page on Facebook.

Valerie Murphy, President of Network Ireland Limerick, said “This theme is very close to our heart. Network Ireland Limerick is all about collaboration.
