An Ennis based woman has taken up a senior role with Community Finance Ireland.
Rose Hally has lived in Ennis since 1997 when she became Bank of Ireland Branch Manager in the County town. She has been appointed as a Client Relationship Executive with Community Finance Ireland covering the Western corridor.
Community Finance Ireland is one of the largest providers of finance to the community and voluntary sector on the island of Ireland over the last 20 years and has up to €100 million available in funding.
Tipperary native Rose has held senior management roles with Bank of Ireland over the last twenty years, both as Branch Manager in Ennis and Head of Business for Co Clare. Rose brings significant management experience from her successful career in banking and finance to this new role. During this time Rose has also been actively involved within the community, taking on voluntary roles in many diverse organisations, working with groups such as Clare Youth Service, St Flannan’s College, Special Olympics Ireland, Ennis Chamber of Commerce, Ennis Rotary Club, and was a founding member of Clare Ladies Cycling Club.
Hally told The Clare Herald of her delight with the appointment “I believe my background will allow me to understand the needs of community and social enterprise and support them in achieving their objectives for their projects within their communities. Community Finance Ireland recently approved their first investment in Co. Clare, to Killaloe-Ballina Family Resource Centre, who are being assisted as they transition to a new premises in the town. We are keen to build on this work and many other investments in Clare and elsewhere over the coming years.”
Donal Traynor, Associate Director of Community Finance Ireland said, “It’s wonderful to have an experienced professional such as Rose Hally join the Community Finance Ireland team, because in addition to her career in banking and finance, she has been heavily involved in community projects for decades.”
