Our Club is a very vibrant one and one of the biggest in Ireland. We celebrated our 60th Anniversary in 2021. The Club has always been involved at National level and ready to get stuck in at every turn. We engage in many activities throughout the year and have a good mix of Programme Action and friendship. We concentrated on friendship and staying connected over the past two years and helped each other through the pandemic. Despite that, within restrictions, we have also helped our local Women’s Refuge, Rape Crisis Centre and the Hope Centre, a cancer support centre. The “Orange the World” campaign has been a highlight of our programme action over the past five years or so, and we are now sharing our resources for the action with other Clubs around the country. We are “the best of sisters”, always game for action while looking out for each other. Another highlight in the Soroptimist Diary is the annual Girls’ Public Speaking Competition. Our Club has been taking part in this competition for the forty-one years of its existence, and, to our delight, we had the National winner this year, so we will be hosting the National Final in 2023.
Soroptimists transform the lives and status of women and girls through
education, empowerment and enabling opportunities.
