Social Climbing ;-)

Eamonn (Joe's Dad) yesterday received an award presented by Senator David Norris at the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham for his great service to the RNLI . It was a lovely day and fabulous to be part of this acknowledgment of the great work done by the many volunteers.

The event is sponsored by the Office of the Taoiseach, and as a result the guest of honour is normally a Government Minister, however thanks to the election Senator Norris was asked to stand in!

He is a highly entertaining speaker and charming individual and it was lovely to meet him. He make such an effort to focus on each individual he meets with, and seems to have a special word for everyone. He was unassuming and happily joined our table with glass of wine in hand for an after dinner chat.
