Both the Ireland-U.S. Council’s 27th Annual Winter Meeting and the Ireland Funds’ 29th Annual Emerald Isle Palm Beach Dinner Dance took place in Palm Beach, Florida, over Valentine’s Day. At the Council’s meeting, Ambassador Dan Mulhall updated the members and their guests on Brexit, and Arabella Bishop and Charlie Minter from Sotheby’s spoke to the crowd on the importance of investing in Irish art. The Ireland Funds’ black-tie gala, “An Irish Valentine Celebration,” honored longtime supporters Paula and Bob Butler with its 2019 Philanthropic Leadership Award. Vocalist Niamh Hyland performed, accompanied by Shu Nakamura on the guitar. ♦ Maggie Holland
