Welcome to our WINning blog

What started as a way to highlight events and news will be expanding, as the group itself goes through this exciting period of growth and change.

We are now accepting blog submissions and photos from any members about the WIN events you attend. Or, maybe you have news about something cultural in the Irish community? An exciting update about an opportunity for women in tech? A project you are working on that you think the group should know about?

We’re looking forward to showcasing our members, their achievements and interests – and to see your names up in lights! Please submit your blog, or even an outline to discuss, to enquiries@womensirishnetwork.com. (Our volunteers will do their best to accommodate as many people as possible.)

  • It is with great sadness that we recently lost our friend and WIN member Norrie Buxton after a long struggle with ovarian cancer.
.
Norrie was a great and loyal supporter of WIN and one of our first members, her cheerful demeanour and appreciation of our events over the past 20 years was a great boost to all of us. We will miss her dreadfully.

We send all our condolences to her friends and family at this time.
.
Details of Norrie's funeral arrangements will be posted as soon as we know them.
