Women’s Collective Ireland – Limerick (previously known as Limerick Women’s Network) plans on doing something a little different for International Women’s Day this year, throwing women a party. On Tuesday, March 7th from 6pm – 9pm the Women’s Collective will host a party to celebrate WCI International Women’s Day in the Savoy Hotel. The event will include light refreshments, the musical talent of local singer JaYne as women arrive at the venue, and a little later in the evening Limerick DJ Olivia Chau will get everyone on their feet.
Women’s Collective Ireland – Limerick Coordinator, Yvie Murphy, said, “We are very excited about International Women’s Day this year. We got the sense from the women we are working with that they wanted something light and fun to look forward to so we hope to deliver just that. We are delighted to have two really talented local women providing entertainment to us for the evening and that we can create a nice space for women to get together and talk, laugh, sing and dance, with no agenda. This event is proving to be a popular one so we are asking that any woman who wants to attend please reach out and let us know as places are limited.”
Women’s Collective Ireland – Limerick will host their International Women’s Day event on Tuesday, March 7th in the Savoy Hotel, doors are at 6pm. This event is free to attend but must be booked in advance as places are limited.

About Women’s Collective Ireland – Limerick
Women’s Collective Ireland – Limerick aims to promote gender equality through our work with women who experience multiple forms of oppression. We provide information for women on a range of issues such as health provision, screening services and men’s violence against women services. Additionally, we provide supports for women to return to education and training and to access employment and/or volunteering opportunities. We run various courses and events, such as health and awareness days, and take part in campaigns and celebration days such as International Women’s Day. We engage in public consultations relating to women’s issues and broader issues using a gendered lens. We were instrumental in the establishment of the Limerick Women’s Caucus in 2019, the first of its kind at a local level in the country.
