Shane Byrne helps make LIBS Gala Ball 2015 a huge success

We at the London Irish Business Society want to say a big thank you to all who attended our fourth gala ball in the The Landmark Hotel last Saturday.


We’d also like to thank our guest speaker, former Ireland international Shane Byrne, without whom the night would not have been the same.

Shane Byrne Speaks

A total of 300 people filled the beautiful ballroom at the Landmark helping to make the night a huge success. A total of almost £6,000 was raised and will be divided between GOAL’s refugee appeal and the LauraLynn Children’s Hospice.

Ball attendees

We’d like to say a special thank you to the staff at the Landmark hotel, The Bogus Brother for their entertainment and to Sulaiman Sibai for his photography. We’d also like to extend our sincere thanks to Pól Gallagher who funded the brilliant photo-booth and supplied the artwork on the night and to all those who donated prizes for the raffle.

Guest Speaker & Charity Partner Announcement

LIBS Gala Ball 2015

Saturday 3rd October
The Landmark Hotel, London


The London Irish Business Society is proud to announce that former Irish International, Shane Byrne will be taking the front row as the guest of honour at our 2015 gala ball.

On the eve of Ireland’s World Cup clash with Italy, Shane will be sharing his insights as well as re-living his journey from the Blackrock College cabbage patch, to Donnybrook, Lansdowne Road and on tour as a British and Irish Lion.

Join us at London’s Landmark hotel on October 3rd where we will be hosting a champagne reception before dinner, followed by our band for the night, The Bogus Brothers.

There will also be a charity raffle with proceeds to be divided between GOAL‘s appeal for humanitarian relief in the face of the growing refugee crisis and LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice.

Before the many hairstyles of Ian Madigan there was one main mop in Irish rugby, the mullet. Like rugby’s most recognisable hairdo, we expect the night to be business upfront and a party in the back.
