Launched in September by two Dublin mums, the Breakfast Club is a social club aimed at women from all different ages and backgrounds. We caught up with co-founder Naomh to find out more.

Q1. How did the Breakfast Club come about?
It came about when two friends (Naomh and Sarah) thought they’d like to set something up for women, that they’d love themselves! As two stay-at-home mums, with part-time jobs also, time to ourselves is almost zero, so we wanted to give ladies the opportunity to have some me time, in luxury, with lots of fun along the way!

Q2. What is the goal of the breakfast club and who can join?
Our aim is to inspire, motivate and empower women. Especially for those at home, the feeling of isolation can be overwhelming, so to bring ladies together who may, or may not know each other, in a warm and welcoming environment is paramount! We want women to feel nothing but at ease when they come to our events!

Q3. Whether you're an at home mum or a working mum, being a parent can be incredibly stressful - what does the Breakfast Club offer to help these ladies out?
Well, the one element we both thought about first was children, and if we didn’t have someone to look after ours, we wouldn’t be able to go anywhere! So we have a supervised child entertainment area, where mums can leave their children for the duration of the event (2 hours), and enjoy their mimosa, full Irish breakfast, and listen to the guest speaker in peace!

Q4. You've had some amazing guests so far, any memorable moments?
Each event has been memorable in its own right, as all the speakers and topics to date have been so diverse. Sophie White was incredible and so honest in speaking about mental health and her book Recipes for a Nervous Breakdown. Emma Murphy, who spoke about domestic violence, was taken into the hearts of everyone - again, such an honest and emotional talk - then our Fashion Event with Jules Fallon was so much fun! Having a hundred ladies come to your event, was humbling, and certainly made all the hard work worthwhile.

Q5. What do you hope the future of the breakfast club looks like?
Well, we’re going south side and then nationwide in 2019, so we hope for The Breakfast Club to become a household name amongst women, and for it to be thought of as a place of fun, friendship, and fulfilment.

We’re kicking off 2019 with The Happy Pear on January 8th, so no doubt we’ll have a room full of happy women too! We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved so far, and the response we’re getting so, hopefully, The Breakfast Club goes from strength to strength!
