September 27, 2013. Last night, we screened ‘Who Is Dervla Murphy?’ for nearly 100 people at the Soho Hotel in London. In yet another city, guests loved the Mixed Bag Media documentary and were applauding at the end. Delighted that the filmmaker Garret Daly, as well as Dervla’s friends and publishers from Eland, could join us.
Special thanks to Morgan Stanley who last year began an annual tradition of sponsoring an Alliance/Mitchell Scholars reception in London. Caroline McLaughlin is fantastic in helping me pull this together. McLaren Innovation, CurrencyFair and Renew Solutions sponsored the screening. Special thanks to Felimy Greene for helping to bring this all together.
The 100 guests were another eclectic group of people from publishing, the arts, finance, business, sport and the four Mitchell Scholars who were in London were on hand. See the pics here
While in London, I also met with the new Irish Ambassador to the UK Dan Mulhall and look forward to working with him on US-Ireland Alliance connections with London.
