TWENTY Limerick businesswomen have been shortlisted for the 2022 Network Ireland Limerick awards.

Sponsored by Limerick's Local Enterprise Offices and AIB, the awards will take place in person, after Covid-19 restrictions eased, at the Strand Hotel on Thursday, May 19.

The winners of each category will then go on to compete at the Network Ireland National Businesswoman of the Year Awards which will be announced at a black tie gala ceremony in Galway in October.

Last year, three Limerick businesswomen went on to win an award at the national awards.

The five categories are: emerging new businesswoman, solo businesswoman, creative professional, employee shining star and 'power within' champion.

Emma Wilson, President of Network Ireland Limerick said, “We have so many talented and dedicated female professionals among us. They have successful careers, run successful businesses, but in many cases also juggle the needs of their families plus are involved in the community and carry out voluntary work.  Our businesswoman of the Year awards are designed to recognise the achievement of these women."
