The Honourable The Irish Society held a Garden Party at Cutts House, Coleraine, as part of the summer visitation programme for the Governor and Deputy Governor and trustees of the Society. The Mayors of Derry City and Strabane Council and Causeway Coast and Glens Council, the High Sheriff of County Londonderry along with representatives from the local business community, the University of Ulster, and the River Bann fishery organisations and statutory bodies attended the evening event.

 

The Governor, Sir David Wootton, outlined the role of the Society, and the ongoing work with the Livery Companies in the City of London to encourage them to re connect to a shared history of over 400 years with the Society. He also highlighted the opportunity to develop links between the City of London and Northern Ireland.

 

Edward Montgomery, Secretary of The Honourable The Irish Society, said: “This summer event was a great opportunity to explain how the Irish Society can act as a conduit between the City of London and County Londonderry, and further help to strengthen economic links as well as encouraging the development of charitable connections between the two areas.”
