So we had a very special day out yesterday.  At President Higgins special request, we were invited to sing at one of his famous garden parties in Áras an Úachtarán.  On this occasion, the garden party was a celebration of those who work to support refugees and people seeking asylum, fleeing persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, social group or political views. We had a wonderful time at the Áras and were of course delighted to be part of the entertainment for this special audience.
