Network Ireland Business Women of the Year Awards 2014

Posted By: AIB Business
Network Ireland Business of the year 2014

Many of Ireland’s top business women attended the prestigious Network Ireland Business Women of the Year Awards in Killashee House Hotel, Kildare, on Friday 26th September 2014.

Proudly sponsored by AIB, the Awards were presented by TV3's Colette Fitzpatrick and Mary Fehily-Hobbs (Network Ireland National President) at a gala dinner following the annual Network Ireland conference.

Ken Burke, Head of AIB Business Banking and one of the judges of the Awards, said: “This year’s short-listed candidates were nothing short of exceptional. We put each of them through a rigorous judging process at AIB’s Bankcentre a few weeks ago, and all of the judges were very impressed by the passion, entrepreneurship and drive of these inspirational business women.”
