On a warm, sunny evening in Dublin, a host of well-known faces flocked to Kennedy’s of Westland Row, one of Dublin’s most historic pubs, to celebrate the media launch of a modern, new cocktail bar ‘Kennedy’s Station.’

Well known guests on the evening included Ann Doyle, Xpose’s Cassie Stokes, Niamh Cullen, Rob Kenny, former Miss Ireland Aoife Walsh, and stylist Laura Mullet and Justine King.
