At the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, Dublin 4.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar attended the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland Thanksgiving Lunch, sponsored by William Fry, during which former Irish president Mary Robinson was awarded the Distinguished Leadership Award.

Mr Varadkar is quoted as having told those present: “Dr Mary Robinson has always been ahead of her time, whether campaigning for gender equality, human rights, or climate justice, and continues to be an inspiration to so many.”

Good times.
