LUNCH WITH BONO (UPDATE)

July 11, 2006

South African Ambassador 004 

He wasn’t there! But it all went well, anyway. 60 people showed, 38 were the ballet cast and the rest were a mixture of South African Embassy staff and the usual hangers-on! My husband, his brother and the Ambassadors personal chef, put together a beautiful buffet with a South African theme. (The dancers are from Capetown)

 The wine, diet coke and Ballygowan flowed.The Ambassadors daughter sang, speeches were made and then they all got back on the bus and off to see ‘Riverdance’ at the Gaeity!

I left at 7.30 and took a detour past Bono’s house. Its a 6-bedroomed castle which looks as though its built into the cliff-face. It was previously owned by Maeve Binchy. Vico road is full of great houses owned by the rich and famous. One day I will squat live there…

I’m managing a V.I.P. lunch tomorrow in Dalkey, Co.Dublin at the home of the South African Ambassador. She is entertaining the full cast of ‘Queen at the Ballet’

 Her next-door-neighbour is Mr.Bono. She invites her neighbours to most events held at her home, so I would be chuffed if I even caught a glimpse of ‘yer man’…..
