Zappone’s 5 star hotel party before Cronygate “included Varadkar”

Former Minister,  Katherine Zappone, held a party for 50 friends, including Leo Varadkar, in a 5 star hotel in Dublin just days before her controversial appointment to a new UN position, the Irish Independent reports.

Ms Zappone hosted around 50 friends and former colleagues at a private outdoor function in one of the country’s most expensive venues, the Merrion Hotel, the paper reported.

The event took place just six days before Ms Zappone was appointed as special envoy to the United Nations on freedom of opinion and expression, a position she reportedly raised and for which was not publicly advertised.

The Covid restrictions do not allow multiple tables to be booked in restaurants, pubs or hotels.  The party hosted by Ms Zappone seated guests at tables of six in the Merrion Hotel’s Garden Terrace.

The appointment of Ms Zappone has led to accusations of cronyism and widespread public anger.
