International Women’s Day 2018
This Thursday, 8th March 2018, marks International Women’s Day 2018, a day which celebrates women’s achievements and calls for continued gender equality across the globe – and this year’s theme is #PressforProgress, urging women to press ahead and maintain gender equality.
The day has been celebrated for over a century and brings together women’s groups, businesses, charities and other organisations in celebrating women under the International Women’s Day banner.
Throughout our business we are proud to work with strong, independent women and we are committed to promoting women in the workplace. As a female entrepreneur I know the challenges which have been faced by women in the past and have seen a tide of change over the past decade. It is essential that as a society we continue to seek and maintain change, for equality for women and indeed all people.
There are a number of International Women’s Day events happening across the country today which will raise awareness. To read more on the day, please visit www.internationalwomensday.com
Today we celebrate our colleagues, friends and family and we will press for progress to continue to strive for gender parity.
One of Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel’s favourite seasons is about to commence, the start of the Six Nations Championships 2018.
We are looking forward to welcoming guests and locals to our Dungeon Bar to watch the fixtures live – you can’t beat the atmosphere down there and there’s been many a moment when you could hear a pin drop as it came down to a crucial penalty! With ample seating and large screens, the Dungeon provides the perfect backdrop for match viewing in the Killiney/Dalkey area.
As always, we will be serving delicious light meals and snacks in the Dungeon Bar to enjoy during the match. Pop up and try our delicious combos:
1. Any pint of Draft Beer & Chicken Wings: €10.00
2. Any pint of Draft Beer & Guinness Pie: €15.00
3. Any pint of Draft Beer & Burger: €18.00
