TWO LOCAL businesswomen were among sixty female entrepreneurs with a combined turnover in excess of €44 million, who gathered last week to attend a Going for Growth National Forum in Co. Kildare.

Gillian Moore of Fuschia Make-up and Denise Walsh of Relish Cafes were just some of the enterprising women selected to take part in the current cycle of Going for Growth, a support initiative for female entrepreneurs.
