Network Limerick Awards 2015
June 24th. 2015
A fabulous evening was had on 20th May for the annual Network Limerick Awards in the gorgeous surroundings of No.1 Pery Square. (Can I live here please?!) The evening was to celebrate women in business and to acknowledge successes, something we so often forget to do as people. The Awards were presented by the lovely Jenny Huston. Jenny who is a former 2fm DJ has in the past year launched her own luxury jewellery brand known as Edge Only. Having gotten a glimpse of some of the collection on the night I can say that it really is beautiful and strikes the perfect balance of something cool and stylish with a piece that can stand the test of time. Her passion and knowledge of all matters jewellery related was also fascinating to listen to and I have no doubt that this new venture will be a fantastic success for her.
I was delighted to be amongst the winners on the night having being crowned Businesswoman of the Year in the New Business Category. Carmel Bracken of Design Wise Automation was crowned Businesswoman of the Year in the Established Business Category and Petrina Hayes of the Savoy Hotel in Limerick took home the award for Businesswoman of the Year in the Employee Category. Congrats to all those involved. Meeting and chatting with all the entrants during the night made it quickly apparent that there are some seriously talented, driven and inspirational businesswomen in Limerick. That we should all be proud of our successes was the consensus for the evening and I couldn’t agree more.
