Ms. Una Byrne - one of the German teachers at Presentation College and Meadhbh Broderick - the winner of last year’s German Olympiad, were both invited recently by the German Ambassador to a reception to celebrate twenty-eight years of German Unity.
Pictured in the photo are Meadhbh, Frau Dagmar Potzel - the German Ambassador and Ms. Una Byrne.
The Ambassador hosted a wonderful garden party for invited guests, German companies operating in Ireland and the many companies and businesses which trade with Germany as well as the organisations that actively promote the German language. The importance of building links between the two countries and the need for more Irish people to learn German were spoken about. Guests were also treated to an afternoon of entertainment, fine food and wine and networking opportunities.
