INMO celebrates 100 years
Press release 28.11.19


The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation is ending its hundredth year with an event in its Richmond Event Centre today (Thursday).

The event - held in a former hospital - will see hundreds of nurses and midwives gather for panel discussions, exhibitions, celebrations and the return of the Nurse and Midwife of the Year Awards.

The day’s events include:


  • a panel industrial relations in nursing and midwifery with Eamon Dunphy
  • a panel of the future of the professions with Norah Casey
  • a special play by Smock Alley
  • the unveiling of a new tapestry celebrating nursing and midwifery trade unionism, designed by Robert Ballagh
  • presentation of the Nurse and Midwife of the Year awards.

INMO General Secretary, Phil Ní Sheaghdha, said:

“Our professions have much to be proud of. Nurses and midwives’ development has moved in lock step with society’s over the past century.

“We not only celebrate the care and skill in our professions over the past hundred years, but the collective power built in our trade union.

“Nurses and midwives have so often been written out of their rightful place in history. We aim to elevate our professions to their rightful place in the story of the last hundred years - and onwards.”
