A warm Irish welcome was received. The Conference theme was empathy and the guest speakers at the Conference included a representative from the traveller community in Ireland, a CEO of a large International Pharmaceutical Company and an MEP.
All speakers emphasised the importance of mutual respect and understanding and the opportunities available to us all to make a difference.
The importance that Soroptimists make to the lives of Women and Girls around the world was recognised by all speakers. All delegates agreed that the Conference gave a unique insight into the work of Soroptimists on both sides of the Border in the Island of Ireland
Seven of us also took the opportunity to enjoy some of the countryside around Killarney and a short city break in Dublin before returning to Kenilworth.
