40 years of Mexico-Ireland diplomacy celebrated

SAVOY Hotel was after-party to a cultural evening of classical music, Mexican foods, dance and music by the Kinvara based Gringo Kings as Mexico and Ireland continued in a series of commemorative events. Each has celebrated 40 years of the establishment of formal relations between Mexico and Ireland, Mexico being eternally fond of us, especially in the West, since the San Patricio heroes in the Conderate US army laid down arms for Mexico rather than be party to that nation’s conquest and pillage by the Americans.

See Limerick Post’s After Dark this week for the report by Catriona Tierney on Saturday 18’s concert in  St Mary’s Cathedral with Horacio Franco and Daniel Ortega.

Director of Savoy Hotel Ronan Branigan and his wife Anne later welcomed Mexican Ambassador Carlos Garcia De Alba, the Ambassador’s partner Fiona Roche, Metropolitan Mayor Jerry O’Dea, Limerick Council CEO Conn Murray and wife Ann, Council’s Pat Daly and wife Mary, business man Gerry Power, Irish World Academy’s Oscar Mascarenes, John Horgan of Killaloe and West Cork Chamber Festivals and many more for a Latin themed party laced with Prosecco that continued into the small hours.
