ALCI Conference – A Venue For The Quintessence Challenge

ALCI is delighted to announce that the upcoming Annual Conference (29th September) in the Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth, is a registered venue for this year’s Friends of Breastfeeding Ireland Quintessence Challenge. Email alci@ireland.com to get a Booking Form for the Conference, and partake in the challenge during the morning.


The Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge takes place all over the world on September 29th. At last year’s Challenge, 400 children breastfed simultaneously in Ireland, winning Ireland second place worldwide.


This is the third year that Ireland has participated in the Challenge, and the organisers hope that it will raise public awareness of the need for information and support for breastfeeding families. ‘Latch on’ will take place at 11 am at many different venues all over Ireland, and any breastfeeding mother who attends the ALCI Conference will be facilitated in participating.  Email alci@ireland.com for booking form.
