Bank of Ireland Alumni Network

Welcome message from Francesca McDonagh, Group CEO

In this short video, Francesca McDonagh, Group CEO, announces the establishment of a new Alumni Network for Bank of Ireland and explains why it is important for colleagues past and present.

Our purpose is to enable our customers, colleagues and communities to thrive and one of the most important communities we have is our Alumni. Colleagues working in the Bank today are part of a much wider Bank of Ireland family who want to stay connected with former colleagues and friends. So, whether you’ve spent your entire career with the Bank or worked here for a part of it, we’re keen to help you stay connected and keep you up to date. Please join our Alumni Network and get involved.


Dublin Pride 2019 BOI Alumni invitation

Get Involved in Bank of Ireland’s Dublin Pride parade entry on Saturday 29 June 2019.

Bank of Ireland’s #WithPride Network invite’s our Alumni members to join in the fun and participate in the Bank’s Dublin Pride parade entry.

Pride is an opportunity to celebrate with our colleagues, families and friends on what we’ve achieved in Ireland and to stand in solidarity with those worldwide who continue to fight discrimination.



This year, the theme #RainbowRevolution reminds us of the many strides made by the LGBTQ+ community for inclusion and diversity, so we would like to invite YOU, our Alumni, to join us as we walk #WithPride to inspire those who are not ready to walk out yet.

The Parade will commence at 1pm at O Connell St on Saturday 29 June, finishing in Merion Square. We’ll also be having a pre-parade event to get everyone in the pride spirit!

If you’d like to get involved, please register as soon as possible and fill through the following link – Bank of Ireland’s Dublin Pride 2019.

Family and friends are welcome and encouraged to join in this #SummerWithPride!

Bank of Ireland Alumni Network – Dragon Opportunities with BizWorld

Biz World

Bank of Ireland has partnered with BizWorld Ireland and delivered workshops across the country since 2015. In these unique workshops pupils work together in small teams taking the role of Directors in a company. They are jointly responsible for coming up with a new product or service, communicating its benefits and acquiring investment in order to develop and market it.


The workshop comes to life when a representative of the Bank visits the school on day 2 at approx. 11am to act as a Dragon to help with the judging activity. The role of the dragon is to listen to the children present their idea and ask questions relating to their business plan. If you would like to register your interested in getting involved please email
