Social events are a regular occurrence in MKO uniting the company from the four corners of Ireland. In addition to our annual Christmas party and Summer BBQ, we partake in annual golf, soccer and tag rugby tournaments along with Go karting, bowling and attendance at the Galway Races. MKO also participate in many 5km/10km runs along with hill walking excursions arranged at weekends. MKO are a great supporter of Connacht Rugby and staff enjoy season tickets to games throughout the championship.
One of the greatest social events held by MKO over the last couple of years however has been our archaeological trips. Over the last few years MKO were delighted to accompany Michael Gibbons, archaeologist, on an inspiring trip to the Skellig islands, the Blasket islands, Inisbofin and Black Sod.
Since 2018, MKO has teamed up with Cope Galway’s Helping Hands project. Once a month at two locations a number of staff participate in this initiative where residents are assisted with gardening and grounds tidy up.
