DARA Ó BRIAIN IN CONVERSATION WITH PAULINE MCLYNN

We are delighted to invite all of our paying members and their guests to join us for lunch on 13 December – book now via Eventbrite or ask to reserve your place via PayPal in order to avoid disappointment. Final tickets on sale now!

On 13 December we welcome world-renowned comedian, Dara Ó Briain, in conversation with his friend and brilliant actress, Pauline McLynn. This will be no ordinary interview – with these two heads together, we’ll have an exclusive treat to kick off our holiday season.

This incredible afternoon will take place at the Waldorf Hilton, Aldwych, London, with a drinks reception at 12 noon, followed by a delicious lunch with wine. We’ll enjoy a verbal adventure from Dara and Pauline that will no doubt be unforgettable!

Tickets will be available individually, as well as by booking a table, where a WIN member might like to host a group as hospitality for their own business, colleagues or friends.

To receive the members’ link to purchase individual tickets on Eventbrite, please email: enquiries@womensirishnetwork.com

There are also a limited number of premium tables available; featuring best seats, premium wines, special goody bags and corporate logo on event materials. For premium and regular tables of 10, please email: womensirishnetwork@gmail.com

 

We recognise that this event is more expensive than our others, by necessity, to cover the costs of a venue large enough for the occasion, so we’re introducing a new feature to the group. For anyone wishing to make payments in instalments, for any reason, please just ask to be sent a PayPal invoice.
( enquiries@womensirishnetwork.com )

You may pay in instalments at any times that suit you, prior to the event. This method may also work best for those of you who have asked to split invoices, as your employer has offered to pay 50% of your networking costs. We want to do everything we can to make this event accessible to WIN members.

Many thanks to Arthur Cox, Enterprise Ireland, HSBC and Strange Music for their generous support!

  • ✨ @EmmaDabiri might be one of the most interesting Irish people we know. This interview is about her recent book 'Don't touch my hair' and it is well worth reading! Hope you are all looking forward to the members event on March 4th for #IWD2019 when Emma will join us and talk about her story.
📰
It's a sweltering afternoon and on a quiet London side street, outside an impossibly chic bakery (it's where Meghan and Harry had their wedding cake made), academic, author and former-model Emma Dabiri is taking a well-earned break from working on the final manuscript for her forthcoming book: Don't Touch My Hair.
Before we meet I half considered this a slightly redundant admonition for polite society - why would anyone, bar someone with latent Harvey Weinstein tendencies, touch a woman's hair unbidden? - but, in person, you can see where the temptation might arise. In this most genteel of settings, Emma's hair is an event, a happening, a lustrously-beautiful nimbus that frames her fine features. Curiosity and generations of cultural racism seem to spur the urge to pet it, stroke it. I heroically resist, but others are not so strong.
📰
"A few weeks ago a woman reached out to touch my hair on the tube and as she put out her hand she said 'wait… you don't like that, do you?' It was as though some dim memory of editorials she'd read somewhere, came bursting through; she remembered and held herself back a bit.
📰
Growing up in Dublin, it happened all the time. It was constant. Often kids would just say "oh my God, look at her hair, it's mad" and come right over and have a feel and a chat", she recalls. "It felt strange and objectifying. I found it strange because I wouldn't even touch someone's dog without asking them. I never questioned all of the treatments (that are used to 'relax' black hair) but they weren't always available to me because it's difficult to get those products in Ireland. My mum would work in Liverpool or Manchester, and there you could get a curly perm, which is sort of like defined curls, rather than afro hair.
