Our Mission Statement
Club HistoryThe idea for this wonderful club was conceived by Ann Dowley Spillane, who is currently recovering from cancer. It was following her diagnosis and whilst undergoing treatment that she became acutely aware of the need for a Girls Community or Club to support each other with ideas, advice and most importantly, a good night out. And so in February 2011, The Girls Club, which is based on a solid positive approach and positive encouragement, was born!
Throughout 2011 the Club members met regularly at the Ambassador Hotel in Cork City, holding many workshops, events and fundraisers throughout the year from information nights, make-overs and a fashion show to releasing the Clubs very first Christmas single and video!
Within the space of a year and with the help of many generous donations and volunteers along the way, Ann has managed to secure, refurbish, and furnish a new premises at 26 St Paul's Avenue in the City Centre. This wonderful premises will be our official clubhouse and 'home away from home' where we hope to provide vital support to our members and their families including free counselling as well as offering a range of classes (such as relaxation classes, zumba, aerobics etc.), workshops, complimentary therapies and a drop-in centre during the day.
