McCann FitzGerald stays on as Ireland Funds sponsor

McCann FitzGerald LLP has continued its sponsorship of The Ireland Funds London City Lunch, which took place on Friday (17 May) at the Mansion House in London.

The London City Lunch is one of The Ireland Funds’ flagship events and a key part of the organisation’s annual fundraising efforts.

Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform of Ireland, Paschal Donohoe delivered the keynote address to 250 senior business executives, with funds raised to be donated to No Mind Left Behind (NMLB).


NMLB is an initiative developed by The Ireland Funds to provide financial support for younger people from DEIS schools in Ireland to complete third-level education.

The grant is designed to help cover the costs of books, accommodation and other key expenses involved with going to university. The scholarship supports students for up to five years of undergraduate study, allowing a student to change course or repeat a year if required.

Stephen Holst (managing partner) McCann FitzGerald LLP said: “Promoting more equal access to education is a cornerstone of our Responsible Business strategy and we are delighted to be able to support the important work of the ‘No Mind left Behind’ programme this year."
