Come and Celebrate Network Cork’s Businesswomen of the Year!
In a time like no other, it’s important to recognize how far we have come. These awards celebrate the achievements of our members as they navigate adversity – growing, adapting and building resilience.
The Network Cork Business Woman of the Year 2021 event will be one of Network Cork’s highlights of the year. Meet the finalists in 8 categories and join us for the live announcement of the overall winners in each category. MC for the night is Keith Cunningham and we are excited to have keynote speaker Christine Armstrong. We will introduce you to the sponsors of each category, our judging panel and each of the winners.
This is a night not to be missed. So dig out that glamourous dress from the back of the wardrobe and maybe even those high heels…! as we celebrate with our finalists and overall winners on their amazing achievements. We will be connecting to you virtually and live from the studio in VE Studio Cork!

The name ‘Mná Feasa’ (in English, “Wise Women”) originates from Irish Mythology. Mná Feasa was set up primarily by women who have themselves survived domestic violence and it is thus a crucial link in women’s challenges to violence. We are a community based project run by trained and experienced staff to help victims of domestic violence. https://mnafeasa.com/
