Sweepstakes Luncheon

Rosaline Kelly Papers

Description

Invitation from the Irish Hospital Sweepstakes to NUJ members to attend a lunch at Dublin’s Gresham Hotel, April 1963. The NUJ hosted its annual delegate meeting in Dublin that year and this invitation comes from the Rosaline Kelly Papers. From Drogheda, Kelly was elected to the NUJ’s National Executive Council in 1972 and went on to become the union’s first female president (1975–77). Kelly had previously worked for Woman magazine in London and was later instrumental in the establishment of the union’s retired members’ branch in Dublin.
