The ladies who lunch were out in force at Suesey Street restaurant on Dublin’s Fitzwilliam Place for the AWTE Christmas lunch, reports Ian Bloomfield.

Clare Dunne, Chairperson, AWTE, welcomed members and guests and informed the gathering that the ongoing success of the group, which started with 20 members and has grown to nearly one hundred, was an example of a brave initiate taken by the founding committee.
