The Cranberries… Amy Winehouse… CMAT… Fleetwood Mac… ABBA… Blackhall Music Soc in partnership with D&I will showcase covers from women in rock, pop and indie for International Women’s Day in aid of Women’s Aid.
The Law Society of Ireland Music Society (Blackhall Music Soc) are a collective of 10 to 15 Trainee Solicitors currently undertaking the Professional Practice Course at the Law Society of Ireland. The group was set up by students in September 2022 to provide an outlet for musicians to play together on a weekly basis. After performing two successful concerts, several Irish Trad sessions and a Christmas Carol service in aid of Peter McVerry Trust, the collective takes to the stage at Whelan’s for their biggest showcase yet.
The Law Society’s of Ireland Diversity and Inclusion Society aims to promote the global, multicultural and diverse nature of our PPC Cohort, bringing together all trainees in furtherance of this ambition. To date the D&I Society has organised a D&I Poetry Showcase with William Keohane, tickets to the Lighthouse Cinema for a screening of “Till”, a Coat Drive with for the Peter McVerry Trust, a panel of guest speaker for discussion around the proposed Hate Crime Bill, an event for Traveller Ethnicity Day and collaborated with the book club and yoga club for further women’s day events.
The 8th of March, International Women’s Day, is a global holiday devoted celebrating the achievement of women and seeking gender equality. The focal point of International Women’s day is the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence and abuse against women.
The charity we have chosen to support is Women’s Aid. Women’s Aid is a national, feminist organisation working to prevent and address the impact of domestic violence and abuse against women. They do this by advocating, influencing, training, and campaigning for effective responses to reduce the scale and impacts of domestic abuse on women and children and providing high quality, specialised, integrated, support services. Their vision is an equal Ireland, with zero tolerance of domestic abuse and all other forms of violence against women and we hope to support the amazing work that they do.
