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 almost 1000 members, across 15 branches, nationwide.
At Network Ireland Limerick, we are very supportive of each other, friendly and progressive. Between 2015 and 2017, our membership increased by an incredible 400% and continues to grow at an exciting pace.
Network Ireland Limerick holds monthly networking meetings where a guest speaker is invited to educate, inform and entertain on topics of interest to women. Our past speakers include Dr Michele O’Dwyer, Associate Dean, KBS UL; Josephine Feehily, Chairperson of Policing Authority; Joy Neville, Ireland’s first female rugby referee; David McGowan of Quirky Glamping in Enniscrone; Shauna Keogh of Empire Elite; Dr Niamh Shaw, Future Space Colonist; Stephen Kinsella, Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Limerick and award-winning weekly columnist for the Sunday Business Post; Niamh Sherwin-Barry, Chief Storyteller at the Irish Fairy Door Company; to name but a few. We feel it is important to keep working on your personal and professional development, no matter what stage you are at in your career.
We have a fantastic and positive committee who work very hard in the background to organise meaningful events and to ensure that Network Ireland Limerick remains responsive to the needs of our members.
In 2018, we were delighted to sign a partnership agreement with the Local Enterprise Office Limerick, and we are immensely grateful for their ongoing support.
