The Celtic Ball 2017

Saturday, March 18, 2017 - 19:00

A chairde,

You are cordially invited to the Irish Club of Rome's annual Celtic Ball.
This year the ball will be held in a new, and much more central location, the splendid Hotel Quirinale, on Via Nazionale, adjacent to Piazza Della Republica.
The Celtic Ball is an elegant black tie event held on the 18 March, on this special evening the Irish community of Rome and friends gather to celebrate St. Patrick's day through fantastic food and entertainment.
There will be a fine five course meal, free drinks served all evening, and the craic won't finish until 2 a.m., so get some rest beforehand and be ready to party the night away in style.
The band playing this year are ‘The Waistcoats’, who recently played at Brian McFadden’s wedding!
This year all of the proceeds from the Celtic Ball will go to the local charity Project Rome.
Project Rome was started by British born Mary Stuart-Miller and Steven Barnes, and works tirelessly with groups of poor or homeless Italians and immigrants.
With the support of an expanding group of multi-national individuals, their common aim is to help others, with kindness, generosity and genuine human compassion.
Project Rome started out as ‘Tiburtina Tuesday‘, serving home-cooked food on the street close to one of Rome’s main stations, giving clothes, shoes and recognition to desperate and disadvantaged people.
Tiburtina Tuesday now attracts around 150 men and women each week, and around 20 lovely volunteers. They also now take food, human compassion and essentials to other locations in Rome, and tour the streets stopping to help, to talk or to embrace.
We are pleased to say that Mary and Steven will join us on the night to explain how they are making a difference on the streets of Rome.

Tickets for this year’s ball are again 86 euro per person, if you pre-pay on paypal and 90 euro if you pay at the door. To book please contact us at this email address:

Best regards,
The ICR Committee
