Supporting Club Hibernia

Hibernia is the Classical Latin name for the island of Ireland.

Over 2.5 million Irish Australians call Australia home, making up approximately 10% of the country’s population.

In the spirit of this rich heritage, Club Hibernia emerged as a vibrant, not-for-profit construction networking organisation for professionals in the construction industry.

Originally established in 2018 by Michael Cahalane of WSce and James Larkin of MBM to connect professionals of Irish descent in the construction sector, Club Hibernia has evolved into a diverse community that welcomes individuals of all nationalities. It fosters an inclusive environment where members can network, exchange details, and share industry insights, ensuring everyone feels part of a vibrant network.

Club Hibernia provides informative and engaging networking events held quarterly around specific themes, featuring panels of industry experts.

Managing Director of WSce, Michael Cahalane said,

“When James Larkin and I founded Club Hibernia, we envisioned a platform where industry professionals, initially of Irish descent but now embracing all backgrounds, could come together to foster collaboration within the construction sector.

It’s truly heartening to witness how our club has evolved into a vibrant hub, uniting both seasoned veterans and budding talents, sparking enriching conversations, and forging lasting connections.

I am immensely proud of how Club Hibernia has extended its reach beyond professional endeavours, actively supporting charitable causes, embodying our commitment to making a positive impact both within and beyond our industry.”

Supporting Club Hibernia

Since its inception, WSce has been an ardent supporter of Club Hibernia, beginning with our sponsorship of the very first event in 2018.

Our ongoing involvement over the years has been both a pleasure and a privilege, allowing us to contribute to the club’s growth and success. Today, we are honoured to hold the title of Foundation Sponsors, a role that underscores our deep commitment to the construction community.

Our sponsorship extends to supporting Club Hibernia’s charitable endeavours, which align with our corporate values of giving back to the community.

Through our collaboration, we help fund a diverse array of philanthropic organisations, including Tresilian, an early parenting service; Irish Support Industry, which aids Irish nationals in need in Australia; the Buildcorp Foundation, focusing on mental health; Hope Orphanage, providing care for children in need; and the Wilkinson Family Fundraiser, a personal cause close to the club’s heart.

These philanthropic efforts reflect WSce’s dedication not just to the advancement of the construction industry but also to making a positive impact on society as a whole.
