MonacoIreland was launched in 2012 by Tracy Rohan, a Monaco resident who was born in Cork, but was looking for a little more sunshine. “I would like to mention Riviera Radio’s Paul Kavanagh, who played a role in the initial brain storming and has supported each of the events,” Tracy says.
“MonacoIreland is about people meeting people from Monaco and the Cote d’Azur in spectacular places,” adds Tracy, who’s also in charge of Communications, PR & Media for the November 28 TEDxMonteCarlo. “Everyone is welcome.”
MonacoIreland’s Summer Party at Amber Summer, Sonia Irvine’s new venture at Meridien Beach, on Friday August 26 promises “a little glitz and glamour, a little fun and banter”. From 7 pm to 1 am, sublime cocktails or a glass of wine for €9, fixed menu options and Asian inspired tapas will be available, and live DJs will keep the party flowing.
A large crowd of many nationalities is expected to attend so RSVP through monacoireland.com to guarantee a spot. Tables are being reserved for dinner throughout the evening.
Past MonacoIreland events have included Mundy, a multi-platinum recording artist and, Irish Senator John Crown, a leading cancer specialist and researcher from John Hopkins, who was the first Irish senator to visit Monaco.
