A private dinner was hosted in honour of outgoing British Ambassador Dominic Chilcott’s achievements at the Shelbourne Hotel’s Constitution Room in June.

Chilcott’s contribution to relations between Britain and Ireland on a number of levels, particularly with regard to business, has been paramount to the success experienced across industry for both nations over recent years.

During his period as Ambassador, Chilcott has overseen the transition to a new era in Anglo-Irish relations.

Chilcott joined the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) 30 years ago and has also served as High Commissioner to Sri Lanka and Maldives, Deputy Ambassador to the United States and Ambassador to Iran.

Between overseas assignments, Chilcott has worked in the FCO in London on European, African and Middle Eastern affairs.

He has also been a private secretary to two Foreign Secretaries, Sir Malcolm Rifkind and the late Robin Cook.

Chilcott’s term as Ambassador in Dublin will come to an end in late July.
