Our 70th Annual Gala Dinner was held on Thursday 24th November 2022 at The Morrison Hotel, Dublin 2. The evening began with a drinks reception allowing strangers to become friends, industry connections to be made (without the use of LinkedIn!) providing a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere before the night's festivities took place.
CEO Joe Kenny was our very capable MC for the night. To the left, pictured with Minister Hildegarde Naughton, Joe Kenny and CILT President Brendan Keating.
