BPW host former Primark head

Wednesday, 17th May, 2017 1:00am

Breege O’Donoghue, former Group Director, Business Development & New Markets for Primark and current Chair of Design and Craft Council of Ireland, will speak at this year’s BPW Galway Summer Lunch.

The event will take place at The Ardilaun Hotel, Taylor’s Hill, on Friday, 26 May. The day will start with a Prosecco reception at 12noon, followed by a 4-course lunch and raffle in aid of COPE Galway, followed by The Guinness Jazz band from 4pm. BPW would like to thank KPMG for their support of the Summer Lunch.

Speaking on behalf of COPE Galway’s Domestic Violence service, Lorraine Costello said, “The refuge offers a 24 hour accessible service and deals with many crisis admissions of women and their children seeking safety from violence on an immediate basis. For children this can be an especially traumatic time. The funds from the raffle will benefit COPE by enabling them to provide some extras that would greatly assist childcare workers to support children. There is currently no money for taking the children on outings. The current refuge has no play area and the living space for families is extremely small. Access to space to run around in and contact with nature can give the children a break, especially for those who have to stay for longer periods in the refuge.”

Tickets are €50 for members, €60 for non members, via or
