Waitangi Dinner 2015


Details Announced - Waitangi Dinner 2015

The New Zealand Ireland Association will host the annual Waitangi Dinner at 19.00PM on Saturday, 7 February 2015 – and you are invited to join us!

In order to enable as many people as possible to come along, we are trying to keep prices low and will have a lovely meal in one of Dublin’s traditional Victorian pubs, Nancy Hands (30-32 Parkgate Street, Dublin 8), which is just a short stroll from Heuston Station. Featuring strong New Zealand influences, the menu will consist of finger food, followed by a choice of main course and desert.

We will be trialling a new approach to entertainment at the event. Rather than hearing from a single after-dinner speaker, we will host a ‘fireside chat’ (informal interview) with three interesting and inspiring people with a kiwi connection, to learn more about their personal stories.

We have chosen a broad mix of fascinating panellists - it is safe to say there is something for everyone! So without further ado, here is the fireside chat line-up!

MC - Entertainer Danny Dowling

Rugby International - Tania Rosser

Father and Fundraiser - Peter Herangi

Director of the Hunt Museum - Dr. Hugh Maguire

Tickets to the event cost €32 per person for members and €42 per person for non-members, plus transaction fee. Dress code: informal.

Get Luke to St Louis - 2014

A fellow kiwi who now lives in Ireland, Peter Herangi, is running a campaign to raise funds to help his son, Luke who has cerebral palsy.

Luke is 4 years old and has cerebral palsy which affects the muscles in his legs. As he gets older the spasticity (or tightness) in his muscles will further limit his mobility and it’s likely that he will need a wheelchair for anything other than very short distances, if his condition goes untreated.
