Before the Christmas festivities come to an end there is one last event that us girls like to celebrate, Women’s Little Christmas.
Also known as Nollaig na mBan, Ireland is the only country in the world to celebrate the event and it’s very much a Munster tradition that has been enjoyed for generations. That doesn’t mean that ladies across the country can’t join in on the fun.

The event starts at 1pm with a complimentary pre-dinner drink and canapes in the Dungeon Bar with a pianist, followed by a three course exquisite lunch at 2pm in the magnificent ballroom at Kilronan Castle. Guests will get a chance to browse around various stands after the meal. To end it all there will be music from 5pm to 7pm in the Dungeon Bar.
Dress code is black dress with a prize for the best splash of yellow (The Simon Community colours) just to make the event interesting! So ladies watch out for those yellow accessories!!
