Following her appearance on the Late Late Show, RTÉ broadcaster and author Evelyn O’Rourke is set to speak in the Greville Arms Hotel on Friday May 2, accompanied by Mullingar native and acclaimed Irish Times journalist Kathy Sheridan and Dr Patricia Heavey, AIT, for an evening of celebration, inspiration, and enjoyment.
Cllr Avril Whitney and a group of local ladies have come together to host this women’s wellbeing evening. Titled ‘A Celebration of Life’, the event has been designed to embrace the talents and achievements of women. Fittingly, all proceeds of the event are going to the Women’s Refuge Centre, Mullingar (TEAM ) and Westmeath Support, an advocacy service for sufferers of domestic violence.
“The theme of the evening is empowerment and celebration as we aim to highlight what women can achieve and encourage self-belief. I believe this event is hugely important as it will promote women whilst also raising funds for both vital services in the locality. I am absolutely thrilled with the calibre of our speakers, and speaking as one of the only female public representatives on Westmeath County Council, I appreciate the need and desire that we have every so often to celebrate all that is wonderful about us women,” said Cllr Whitney.
The evening will begin with a wine reception at 7pm which will feature a display of the finest products, activities, and organisations that Westmeath has to offer women.
Any local business, organisation, or sports club that would like to set up a table on the evening is asked to contact Cllr Avril Whitney on (087 ) 9533590.
