When President Obama visited us last month there was much anticipation, excitement and silliness, the office suddenly became empty once we heard he and his lovely wife would be driving past us on the way to address the people of Dublin.

Given that we just had the Queen visiting the same week Dublin city became a lot more difficult to get around but it was a fantastic week and drew much of the world’s attention to our fair city.

Unfortunately I missed out on going to the President’s address but from what I’ve heard and read it was all a little too much for some due to overcrowding. Check out a report on how the event went and what an event manager never ever wants to hear. A lesson for all of us when planning an event!
