The picture shows an 11890 gathering with Irish Times journalist, and author John Waters.
11890 had made a 10,000 euro committment, but such was the entertainment value of his performance that the added another 5000 to an already generous donation.
Having spent the evening with them , they are an amazing group of people, committed, as we ourselves are, to doing things in a different way, often in the face of many obstacles put in our way.
It was reassuring to find that we share a very simple philosophy of serving each customer as a unique individual.
I am proud of their achievements and very positive of their continued success.
In my life to date I have admired strong women, whether they are close like my mother, wife and daughters, illiterate village women in Malawi or the ordinary women I meet every day, who do wonderful things as a matter of course. They just get on with it without wondering why they are not men.
Last night I added another to my list, Nicola Byrne, Managing director of 11890.
