IRLI Events in June

June has been a busy month for IRLI and we would like to thank everyone who has supported us and attended our events over the last few weeks.

Firstly, we had a great turnout for the Commercial Law Seminar which was held in the Law Library Distillery Building on Saturday 18th June. The Seminar was chaired by the Hon. Mr. Justice Frank Clarke and we are very grateful to the speakers who made presentations on the papers which had been prepared in advance by junior counsel and solicitors. The event was attended by just under 100 people and raised €2,250 for the work of IRLI.

Thank you also to Arthur Cox for sponsoring the event.

Malawi By The Sea, Fundraising Dinner

The annual Malawi By The Sea dinner in the National Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire, was yet again a night of great enjoyment. There were some new faces and some long standing supporters of IRLI’s Access to Justice Programme and the evening was a great success, raising over €4,000 for the Programme in Malawi.

We were also delighted to have the opportunity to show the below video which was made recently and describes the amazing work being done by the IRLI team and our programme partners in Malawi.
