Following on the back of last year’s success, West Women in Farming (WWFI) will play host to Wine, Women and Wellies on Saturday, 23 June, 2018.
The event which aims to celebrate the continued success of WWFI will return to the Arches Hotel, Claregalway, Co. Galway.
The evening for the group’s all-female members will begin at 7 pm with meditation; followed by a cold buffet meal; the launch of WWFI’s new clothing line and mingling among members.
In 2017, Agri Women including those involved in Farming; Agri-business; Journalism; Veterinary; Education; Research and Industry, from across the island of Ireland gathered to attend the informal social outing.
Speaking ahead of the upcoming event, newly appointed chairperson of the voluntary organisation, Mona O’Donoghue-Concannon said: “WWFI have decided to organise this event once again to provide an opportunity for all like-minded women in agriculture to meet and just have some time away from the farm as it is the busy season.”
Mona, a full-time dairy beef and suckler farmer based in Dunmore, Co. Galway, stressed that her mission as chair of the organisation for the 2018/2019 term is to grow the group’s membership by reaching out to the most vulnerable parties in rural towns including women who farm daily that do not receive the recognition that they deserve.
“Our message this year is to work shoulder to shoulder with our male counterparts,” she said.
All female members are welcome to attend the event. Admission can be gained to the full for €20, while entry to the social event excluding meditation is priced at €10.
