Speaking at the AGM, the new Network Ireland West Cork President, Ciara Lucy said: “Less than a year ago, a few of us put our heads together and decided that as a group West Cork businesswomen could have serious potential to do something really great for the region. The Network Ireland platform was already in existence and in March 2018 we formed the West Cork branch with our launch event in The Ludgate Hub with Dee Forbes as our guest speaker. A few short months later, and we’ve had eight highly successful events and a growing membership base. I’m planning our programme for next year and right now all I can say is that it’s going be an exciting and empowering year for Network Ireland West Cork.”
