The second SIBN St. Patrick’s Day Charity Ball took place on Friday 14 March and raised an incredible €30,000 for Debra Ireland and Debra España. Almost 320 guests gathered together in the Westin Palace for an evening of good food, friendly company, and live music and dance to celebrate Ireland’s national day and the strength of the ties that bind Ireland and Spain. Among the guests were Spain’s Minister for Education, José Ignacio Wert, Secretary of State for Education, Montserrat Gomendio Kindelán and Irish Minister for Small Business, John Perry. During the Ball, Minister Perry presented a ceremonial gift of Irish shamrock to the Spanish education minister. Primark, a major Irish success story in Spain, was the patron of the event.
