Lunch at the RAC November 08 2013
The Women's Irish Network held an Autumn Lunch in the hallowed halls of the magnificent Royal Automobile Club on Pall Mall. Special guest speakers were Sir Terry Wogan and Dara O'Brien. Feeling lucky to be invited to such a salubrious event I threw on glad rags and rocks and flew out the door and into a waiting taxi. A minute down the road I was forced to do a u turn to collect a sick child from school. Wrong direction! Prince Charming dashed to the rescue and once more I was off like Cinderella hitting the lunch just as the starters were being served. We dined on Salmon Roulade accompanied by asparagus and quail's eggs followed by a sublime Steak and Kidney Pie with creamy mash and root vegetables. I drank the Widow Cliquot's brew and shunned any further fine wine offerings. Dara O'Brien's interview with Sir Terry was comedic and insightful. Sir Terry was as charming as ever and sartorially impeccable. Seated at the next table the 'Present' Lady Wogan as 'Sir Tel' affectionately refers to his beautiful wife Helen was wearing a magnificent sapphire and diamond ring enhanced further by a substantial sapphire and diamond line bracelet.
