Children charity drinks for Christina Noble 27th April 6-8 Globe college

Nettworking for a great cause and meet a living legend.

Christina’s passion for children’s rights and unselfish willingness to serve others has shown the world that street and impoverished children are a vital part of humanity and that the abuse and maltreatment they suffer can be stopped.   Born into the slums of Dublin, Ireland, Christina overcame the death of her mother at an early age and spent her childhood in dire circumstances – ultimately surviving years spent in orphanages and a period of homelessness on the streets of Dublin. Her difficult beginnings fueled her passion for children’s rights, to which she has dedicated her life.
25 euros all going to the charity, drinks and event sponsored by Globe college.

Christina Noble of the Christina Noble children’s foundation will be here with us in Munich.  Globe college are hosting a fund raising drinks Nettworking event in the evening to allow people to come and meet her.

The international film “Noble” was made of her life.

She has been awarded an OBE by the queen.

Wexford Opera trip

Weekend away at the Wexford Opera Friday 26th October – 28th October 2018


Following on from the wonderful Wexford Opera festival with Tara Erraught 2016 in the Künstlerhaus, the Irish business network e.V proudly announces a trip to the Wexford Opera.


The tickets of Wexford Opera 2018 opera go on sale 1st May. Richard Devereux, a Wexford local based in Munich, has organized an option for a group to  get up to 15 tickets in advance. The tickets are like hot potatoes, so we thought it was a good idea to extend to the Irish and friends of Ireland who enjoy Opera in Germany.


For Opera lovers who want to join a weekend full of Opera in a beautiful setting and looking to enjoy imagine enjoying an Irish welcome, this weekend is one not to be missed.


The tentative plan

Friday 26th October

11 am fly to Dublin , meeting Dublin airport bus to Wexford from airport

Evening concert, dinner out Friday

Saturday  27th October

Morning beach walk , lunch time concert , free PM , Opera Il Bravo

Die Welt in November 2016 published a very positive review of the Wexford Festival Opera: It begins by drawing a favourable comparison between Wexford and the Salzburger Festspiele, saying that in Wexford Opera is blossoming in an exquisite new, if already eight year old theatre, artistically brilliant and supported by a loyal, enthusiastic audience. The article also mentions the cooperation with the Theater Oldenburg on Donizetti’s “Margherita” that was performed in 2017 before giving brief
positive mentions to each of this year’s main stage operas.


This trip is facilitated by Richard Devereux and Ann Dempsey and promoted by the Irish Business Network e.V
