Denis Desmond and his wife Caroline Downey hosted hundreds at the Pavillion at Leopardstown racecourse in Dublin last night to mark their son Jett’s 21st.

IT was a birthday celebration to beat all others.

Joined by their other children Zach and Storm, the celebrity couple, owners of MCD music promotions, held a black tie gala dinner for their son’s special day.

The start-studded affair saw a string of well-known faces turn out, including some of the biggest names in the worlds of entertainment and sport.

Leading the way were former Irish rugby captain Brian O’Driscoll and his actress wife Amy Huberman, who left baby daughter Sadie at home to spend some quality time with their friends.

They arrived to greet the birthday boy and his family before a sit-down three-course meal.

‘Game of Thrones’ actor Liam Cunningham, who is currently shooting the next installment of the popular HBO drama, arrived with ‘Masterchef’ judge Dylan McGrath and they were followed by photographer to the stars, Barry McCall.

TV3 presenter Martin King attended the party accompanied by his other half Jenny McCarthy, and Boyzone singer Mikey Graham showed up with his wife Karen.

Def Leppard star Joe Elliott also arrived for the bash.

Also stepping out to enjoy the festivities, although he was not photographed, was Dalkey-based filmmaker Neil Jordan. The ‘Michael Collins’ director was supported by a walking cane.

Jordan recently underwent surgery on his knee after he was nearly clipped by a bus while walking in Dublin city centre.

Ms Downey’s close friend Louis Walsh was unable to attend, as it is believed he is back in the UK filming for the next series of ‘The X Factor’.
