Limerick Committee

Catriona O' Donoghue

President

View Profile

I’ve been a member of the Network Ireland Limerick committee since 2017. Over the past 3 years, I’ve held a number of committee roles including Secretary, Digital/Website Officer, Vice President and, currently, President.

My main goal for the year ahead is to provide more opportunities for our members to mix and get to know each other better in different, less formal settings. Along with our regular monthly events, we will be hosting a bi-monthly book club, as well as social coffee mornings each alternate month.

Outside of the network, I run two businesses with my partner, Paul. Both Get West and Escape Limerick provide group activities, primarily for adults and companies. Get West’s core business is running teambuilding events for companies who want to provide an opportunity for their employees to get out of the office, get to know each other better and reward them for working hard all year round. As Get West is fully mobile, we can deliver our activities anywhere. As well as teambuilding, we run Company BBQs and Family Fun Days during the Summer months. While our busiest season is the Spring/Summertime, when people want to get outdoors, we also provide indoor teambuilding options.

Our second business, Escape Limerick, is an escape room experience situated in Limerick City’s Medieval Quarter. It has really blown us away with its popularity with all types of groups and is the perfect complement to our existing teambuilding offering.
