On the eve of the final of the World Cup, H.E. Stephane Crouzat (French Ambassador to Ireland) hosted a glitzy garden party in the grounds of his salubrious official residence on Ailesbury Road, Dublin to celebrate Bastille Day. Bathed in sunshine, members of the diplomatic corps, dignitaries and guests, including Declan Mescall (Features Editor Travelbiz), were wined, dined and entertained throughout the evening.


Well know Irish musician Sharon Shannon and her band performed and were accompanied for one number by the French Ambassador who is an accomplished digital piano player. Interesting fact, post Brexit, France will replace Britain as Ireland’s nearest EU neighbour, Allez les Bleus!
