McGettigan’s Pub, which was one of the main St. Patrick’s Day entertainment venues in Dubai, asked party goers to donate whatever cash they could to the Red Crescent (Red Cross), the International aid charity. In addition, the Managing Director of McGettigan’s and the Bonnington Hotel, Mr. Dennis McGettigan, offered to match all donations to double the total and promised that the entire takings between 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. in McGettigan’s on St. Patrick’s Day would also be added to the total sum.
Dennis McGettigan said, “I am pleased to say that within a very short space of time, we managed to raise AED 30,000, which has now been donated to the Red Crescent to support their aid mission in Japan. I would like to thank everybody who has contributed to this amazing total!”
In response to the devastation caused by an 8.9-magnitude earthquake off the east coast of Japan on Friday 11 March and the resulting tsunami, the Red Crescent Society has deployed 62 response teams over the past 24 hours.
These medical relief teams – made up of about 400 doctors, nurses and support staff – are already providing assistance in affected areas through mobile medical clinics, as well as assessing the damage and needs of the communities affected.
So, the big day has finally arrived! Happy St. Patrick’s Day everybody! Lá Fhéile Pádraig! Sláinte!
The Bonnington Hotel and McGettigan’s Irish Pub in Jumeirah Lakes Towers have kicked off the day’s celebration’s with a live performance of dancers from the Siobhan Kilalea School of Irish Dance in the Bonnington’s Hotel lobby.
Already a big hit with Bonnington guests and visitors last year, the dancers drew big crowds again this afternoon. There are two more performances planned for today, one at 6 p.m. in the beergarden just outside Mcgettigan’s and one at 9 p.m. again in the lobby of the Bonnington, where the Cavendish restaurant also offers a specially created St. Patrick’s Day menu.
Here are some pictures of the dance performance earlier today:
