The women of Newry ‘wave goodbye to the dinosaurs’

The Next Chapter host special film and talk with Bronagh Hinds & Allison Morris

Women from across Newry will come together on the 20th November at a special event where they can ‘Wave goodbye to the dinosaurs’. The event, which is organised by the Next Chapter’s Newry group, hopes to ‘inspire women’, and will feature Bronagh Hinds, and Irish News journalist, Allison Morris. 

The evening will start with a special screening of the film “Wave Goodbye to Dinosaurs” - the story of the NI Women's Coalition, a cross-community party formed in 1996 by local women, followed by a special Q&A with Bronagh Hinds. Bronagh was a founder member of the Women’s Coalition, and she will be interviewed by Allison Morris on inspiring women to make a difference in their local community.

Bronagh was the first Deputy Chief Commissioner of the Equality Commission for NI and was awarded UK Women of Europe in 1999.

Allison Morris is a Security Correspondent and columnist with the Irish News as well as a regular political commentator on the BBC, UTV, RTE and SKY News. A journalist for over 20-years she has won several awards including the NUJ News Journalist of the Year &CIPR Columnist of the Year.

Speaking ahead of the event, Next Chapter Newry Co-Ordinator Mary McDonald said “We are delighted to host this event with two very inspiring women. Both Bronagh and Allison are inspirations for women who want to succeed and make a difference. They are both known to speak freely.  This will be a very exciting and motivating night. The evening is open to everyone, and you can come along to enjoy a drink and a chat, and hear the wonderful stories of women who have led change.”

The event takes place on Wednesday 20th November 2019 from 7pm to 9.30pm in the Clanrye Suite in the Canal Court Hotel. To register, please email
