peter donegan, dr martin & president of ireland mary mc aleese

This was in June during Bloom 2008 with my garden Pour L’amour de Jeux. On the official opening day The President, her husband Dr Martin and entourage came by and stopped at my garden for a chat.

What should you do when you meet the President of Ireland Mary Mc Aleese & Dr Martin?

First, make sure at all times that you prevent yourself from appearing [ish] in any photographs….?!

UPDATE: Of course I eventually did get one really good photograph with President McAleese
