HIS EXCELLENCY, Mr Noel Dorr right the New Irish Ambassador to the Court of St James, was for three years Ireland's Minister to the United Nations in New York, which he describes as "a window on the world."
He has a very beautiful and gifted young wife, Caitriona, formerly Caitriona Doran, chief hostess of the Aer Lingus TramAtlantic service. She is a native of Dublin, from Dundrum, and is a graduate of University College, Dublin. She will be a great asset to a man who has one of the most difficult diplomatic posts in the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs.
Born in Limerick, in 1933 (his home is in Foxford, County Mayo), Noel Dorr was educated at St Nathy's College, Ballaghaderreen, University College, Galway, and at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.
An expert on Six County affairs, he has served his country abroad in Brussels, in Washington D.C. and in New York at the United Nations.
We wish him well in his days in the Irish Embassy in London. He follows in the diplomatic footsteps of some brilliant predecessors.
