International Women's Day Celebration Success

Westside Resource Centre celebrated International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8 March 2016. The event was well attended and a very enjoyable afternoon began with afternoon tea where funds were raised for Gorta – Self Help Africa. This international charity is based in the Resource Centre and works with rural communities to help them improve their livelihoods. Development Manager and Fundraiser Ronan Scully gave a very interesting talk on “Women in International Development”.

Newly elected TDs Catherine Connolly and Hildegarde Naughton attended the event and spoke briefly on the subject of equality for women. The event was rounded off with a wonderful musical recital from Galway Early Music, a group who promote the performance of medieval, renaissance and baroque music in Galway. The afternoon was a great success and was enjoyed by all.
