international women's day

To mark International Women's Day on the the 8th of March, Bank of Ireland Workbench on Mainguard Street will be hosting a Free Breakfast Networking Event. With the theme this year being “Women in the Changing World of Work"  they will have Brenda Kennelly, local business coach and mentor in to give a brief talk on pursuing what makes you happy.mA light breakfast, tea, coffee and some informal networking promises to be a very refreshing morning.


6 nations

Ireland take on Wales this weekend in Cardiff in the 6 nations in a must win game. It’s Ireland’s first ever Friday night game, playing under the lights in the Mellinium Stadium should really add to the atmosphere. Wales will be looking to bounce back from defeat to Scotland. Lets hope that Ireland can continue to put pressure on England at the top of the table and that the Connacht lads can continue to contribute. Great to see Tiernan O Halloran get a deserved call up to the squad.
