Friendly face to welcome visitors
Artist Graham Knuttel, celebrity chef Kevin Dundon and politician Mannix Flynn -- pictured with Dearbhla Hogan (left) and Susan Loughnane outside Bewley's Cafe on Grafton Street, Dublin, yesterday -- are among those who will be inviting tourists out for a coffee or a pint from this June.
They will be acting as ambassadors to help promote the capital as a friendly city as part of a new scheme called 'City of a Thousand Welcomes'.
