NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network are delighted to once again invite the women of Limerick to join them on their annual International Women’s Day Celebration.

This year their event takes place on Monday, March 9th in Ormston House from 10am – 2pm.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

The celebrations this year will include: singing, dancing, poetry, relaxation, refreshments, health talks and an interview with Jean Tierney who was a contestant on RTE’s Operation Transformation in 2019.

Jean successfully applied for Operation Transformation in 2019 after the loss of her baby but had to leave the programme as she found out she had become pregnant.

Jean is very much looking forward to the event, “I was thrilled to be asked by the Limerick Women’s Network to be a part of their International Women’s Day event.  It will give me the opportunity to share my story and connect with women who have had similar experiences to me.”

The celebration will conclude with an interacive discussion from the Limerick Women’s Caucus centred around reimagining Limerick from a women’s perspective.

Coordinator of NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network, Edel Geraghty, said, “We look forward to our International Women’s Day event each year, this year we have great line up including a mix of entertainment, health demonstrations and real-life stories of courage and resilience.

“We are also happy to support the Limerick Women’s Caucus action as we are interested to know what women would change about Limerick, from a gendered point of view, if they got the chance.” she added.

NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network have partnered with Ormston House again this year to host their celebration.
