Jammet's session


THE SOCIAL NETWORK:Dr Veronica Dunne hosted a Jammet’s Style Gala Dinner and musical tribute in the Shelbourne Hotel on Thursday evening. It was a tribute to her favourite restaurant, and all of the proceeds went to the Jack and Jill Foundation.

Jammet’s was the place to dine in Dublin from 1901 to 1967, where a cast of thousands played out their roles including Elizabeth Taylor, Laurel and Hardy, Cary Grant, Edith Piaf and The Beatles.

The MC was Sen David Norris and music was provided by tenor Ryan Morgan and sopranos Suzanne Murphy and Dunne herself.

Enjoying the evening were Jonathan Irwin and his wife Mary Ann O’Brien of the Jack and Jill Foundation, and Alison Maxwell, the author of Jammet’s of Dublin: 1901-67. Alan Stoner, who was a waiter in Jammet’s, flew back from the States and caught up with Louis Jammet’s grandsons Garrett Hood and his brother Grattan Hood. Auctioneer Philip Myerscough conducted a charity auction after dinner.
