AWTE Has Successful Launch in Ireland

Putting their best foot forward, 48 founding members and guests of the Association of Women Travel Executives launched its Irish Chapter at the Morrison Hotel last week. The event was sponsored by Aer Lingus and the successful launch was a sell-out event.

With the assistance of four Board members of the UK Chapter, Debbee Dale, Sarah Clayton-Turner, Lorraine Barnes-Burton and Louise Hodges, and an attendance of 60 women, the Irish Chapter got off to a great start and hit the ground running with Claire Dunne in the lead and ably assisted by Lorraine Quinn and Yvonne Muldoon.
