Thank you to the brilliant team at Northern Ireland Bureau for another lovely St. Patrick’s breakfast.
Each year in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the Northern Ireland Bureau, Invest Northern Ireland, and Tourism Ireland co-sponsor the breakfast. The room is packed full of supporters enjoying great food and great company.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2017 blog post.
