We were also honoured to have Avril Doyle of FIPRA & Former MEP which added another dimension to the proceedings on the evening.

Peter Brennan was congratulated on his in-depth knowledge on the subject and the direct and informative why he was able to communicate it to those present.

Our President Hans De Belder and Vice-President Anny Verwijs presented Dr Brennan with a wonderful hamper from Blackrock Cellar containing wine, glasses and a selection of Belgian Beers.
