St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t get more VIP than at the Marks & Spencer party. On March 17, around 200 gathered for a champagne breakfast at the Grafton Street store’s rooftop restaurant before being guided to grandstand seats at Westmoreland Street and the GPO. Fuelled by goodie bags packed with Food Hall treats including moreish Lir truffles, guests viewed the parade, lead by this year’s Grand Marshall, comedian Brendan O’Carroll and his wife Jenny.
Then, it was back to the M&S rooftop restaurant for a traditional roast lunch with all the trimmings. Alison Grainger & Carmel Breheny of Marks & Spencer Ireland played host to guests including Lord Mayor of Dublin Christy Burke and broadcaster Ray D’Arcy.
