Shine a Light in Millennium Park

Fingal County Council are proud to bring Shine A Light for Women to Dublin 15 this International Women’s Day, March 8th 2023. This is the second year of this initiative, which sees our Sports Office joining together with the Community Office in delivering this important awareness event. The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is ‘Embracing Equity.’ 

The Community and Sports Office are committed to supporting the social inclusion of women and encourage them to participate and raise awareness of issues that affect their lives. Being included, and belonging, feels good. When we embrace equity, we embrace diversity, and we embrace inclusion. Clonee Women’s Shed is an example of inclusion in action at a local level. This event will officially launch this first women’s shed in Dublin 15 which provides a space for women to meet and support each other through various ages and stages in life.

So come and join us as we raise awareness of embracing equity in our own local communities and we light the way for women by ‘Shining a Light’ this International Women’s Day.

Full event programme:

  • 5.15pm: Mind Body Movement Class
  • 5.45pm: Launch of first Women’s Shed in Dublin 15
  • 6pm: Short lap of Millennium Park

Meeting point: Playground, Millennium Park, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15

Remember to dress for the outdoors and wear appropriate footwear.
