As part of the fundraising activities, ByrneWallace staff “donned their green” and hosted a traditional Irish breakfast which kicked off the day’s event.
Commenting on the event, Managing Partner Feargal Brennan said, “Being connected with our community is important to us at ByrneWallace. We have a well-established Corporate Responsibility Programme, and support a wide variety of organisations and causes. Our support includes pro bono work, local involvement and volunteerism as well as hosting numerous fundraising events throughout the year like today’s event; we actively encourage and support our staff to get involved in our community and help make a difference.
“As a business we are committed to working together to contribute to community and other initiatives. Being in a position to do so is a great privilege and it is only right and proper that as a Firm we and our people get behind these initiatives. There is always more that can be done. It is my hope that in the coming year we will develop new programmes which will make a really positive contribution, both through the commitment by our people of their time and energy, and financially."
