The 21st Annual Co-operation Ireland Legal Dinner was held at The Dorchester on Thursday 19 April, 2018 and was attended by around 400 guests from the UK, Ireland and the US. The event, which was chaired by Mary Heaney and James Stewart, was a great success and raised over £70,000 for the Co-operation Ireland Youth Leadership Programme. Guests included, Sarah, Duchess of York, Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore (Justice of the Supreme Court) and Lord Hain (former Secretary of State for Northern Ireland).
The evening commenced with a champagne reception and was followed by a sumptuous four course Dinner. Our auctioneer James Morrish of Kivells was a big hit on the night and guests greatly enjoyed dancing to the wonderful music provided by our céilí band, Ceilidh Generation.
After this very successful event, we can intensify our programme delivery in some very challenging communities, creating cross community and cross border linkages where previously none existed.
Our sincere thanks go to our event Sponsors Fox Rodney Search, William Fry, 36 Civil, Maples and Calder, Matheson, Pinsent Masons and Tweed and thanks also to everyone who attended and those who so generously donated prizes for the raffle, auction and silent auction.
