370 Applicants Vie for Network Ireland Awards

Network Ireland said it has received an “overwhelming” response to its Business Woman of the Year Awards which recognise the achievements of talented and dedicated female professionals.

The women’s business group is marking its 40th anniversary this year.

It said it received a total of 370 applications from members of all its branches around the country.

The winners in the eight categories will be announced at an awards ceremony on Friday, September 29.

The event coincides with the Network Ireland national conference which will include several speakers, panellists and focused workshops on topics such as leadership, financial wellbeing and social media strategies for business.

Among the keynote speakers are owner of Meagher’s Pharmacy Group, Oonagh O’Hagan, and Leinster and Ireland rugby star Linda Djougang.

The National President of Network Ireland, Emma Early Murphy, said this year’s national conference is particularly significant as the organisation celebrates 40 years of Network Ireland and the support the organisation has given to so many women around the country during that time.

“It’s heartening to see new members join every year and I’d like to personally thank all the branches for the tremendous work they do whether that’s organising local events, providing invaluable assistance to members or promoting the organisation within the business community,” she added.

Anna-Marie Turley, Department Manager Entrepreneurship and HPSU Operations, Enterprise Ireland said, that supporting ambitious women to start and to grow a business is a priority for Enterprise Ireland.

“The Businesswoman of the Year awards provides a platform to recognise and showcase the dynamism, innovation and talent of female business leaders throughout Ireland,” she added.
