About this event
We may not travel to Ireland which is why we are bringing Ireland to you. After we will be introduced to Women in European Film, we will take a virtual tour to the Oratory of the Sacred Heart, Dun Laoghaire, a taste of Ireland will be told through the Irish coffee, Irish Brown Soda Bread and a medley of Irish songs. There will be enough time left for questions and discussion between us.
We hope that a large number of you will be able to join us on zoom. The Event is open to all members of the University Women of Europe and their friends.
