Come & Join us to Celebrate Women Together!

"Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow" is the theme of International Women's Day, 8 March, 2022 (IWD 2022), which acknowledges the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to create a more sustainable future.

On the 8th March at 11am, Ballyhoura Development invites all women to join us at the Firgrove Hotel in Mitchelstown for a celebration of all the women that are effective and powerful leaders and change-makers in our communities.
