Stevenage’s mayor and borough council leader were among the dignitaries who joined the town’s Irish community for their St Patrick’s Day celebrations.
The Irish Network Stevenage’s celebratory meal at the town’s Holiday Inn featured a traditional bacon and cabbage lunch, and culminated with chairman Luke Donovan presenting the mayor Pam Stuart with a shamrock.
Sophie Jacobs from the Irish Embassy in London was also among the 190 guests, as were council leader Sharon Taylor and councillors Richard Henry, Jackie Hollywell, John Gardner and Michelle Gardner.
The mayor expressed her appreciation for the INS and its work with older members of the community. There was entertainment from the Grant School of Irish Dancing and musicians Kim Sellick and Mike Bowers.
