Sligo Comes to London

HE Dan Mulhall, Ambassador of Ireland will be special guest on the evening
Sligo Chamber, in association with the Sligo Business Network in London are delighted to invite you to join them for a special Sligo evening in London on Wednesday 7th June 2017.

This event, starting at 7pm will take place in the Queen Mary Hall of the Doyles Bloomsbury Hotel, 16 Great Russell St, WC1B 3NN, just a short distance from Tottenham Court tube station. The Bloomsbury are generously hosting the event.

Keynote speaker will be Kingsley Aikins, Founder of Diaspora Matters and former President of the worldwide Ireland Funds, who has good Sligo roots, a global reputation and is a top-class speaker.

Another special guest, arriving later in the evening, will be HE Dan Mulhall, Ambassador of Ireland, who is leaving London and presenting his credentials to President Trump as he takes up his new role as Ambassador to the United States this autumn.  He has been an outstanding Ambassador, and a great supporter of all things Irish, especially his love of W.B. Yeats and Sligo.

This is a great opportunity for all to say a big thanks to him  and the organisers hope as many as possible will come along on the evening to give him a rousing Sligo farewell.

Project 7 Construction Ltd are the sponsors for the evening. Danny Dwyer, CEO, has strong family links with Sligo and Project 7 delivers exceptional commercial and residential schemes across these islands.

In addition to the Chamber's usual networking and hospitality, the event will be welcoming guests and businesses travelling over from Sligo, including the President of IT Sligo, Dr Brendan McCormack and The Sligo Food Trail.
