The CIPD Ireland Western Region held their Gala Evening on the 8th of November in the Clayton Hotel Galway – this is the social highlight of the year for all HR practitioners based in the West. The event was sponsored by Laya Healthcare for the 5th year running and Donal Clancy (MD of Laya Healthcare) spoke of their delight in being involved with this high calibre event.

Collins McNicholas were sponsors of the GMIT BA in Personnel Management Student of the Year Award for the 10th consecutive year and the award was presented on the night to Joey Callinan – who is a rising star in the HR arena.

Our own Michelle Murphy, Regional Manager of our Galway Office was awarded on the night with the Outstanding Contribution to the CIPD Committee Award sponsored by Careerwise. The award was a pleasant surprise for Michelle who had no idea she was going to be recognised on the night for her contribution and was speechless for once at the occasion.

The event was attended by over 200 people and the HR community was represented from the Multinational, SME and public sector arenas. A great night was had by all, with excellent entertainment and great company. As always the CIPD Committee organised a wonderful evening and Collins McNicholas would like to commend them for the long hours they put in on a voluntary basis to deliver the informative events to the HR community in the Western region.
