Farrell family fly to New York to support Colin
They don't call them The Air Miles Family for nothing. The Farrell clan will be flying in from everywhere next month to New York.
Dance dreamboat Eamon and his artistic husband Steven Mannion are coming from Dublin (their dogs Bess, Rosie and Lilly in Sandymount will presumably enjoy the free gaff?), while family matriarch Rita and movie producer husband Joel B Michaels are jetting in from Los Angeles, as are lovely Rita's beautiful daughters Claudine and Catherine. They all live in West Hollywood, don't you know?
The reason for the family summit in the Big Apple is that the incomparable Colin Farrell is being honoured at the 43rd New York Gala of The Ireland Funds on May 3 at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers. Chairman of The Ireland Funds America, our own John Fitzpatrick, will be in attendance on the illustrious night, as will many other of the great and the good from the Irish American business and cultural community. As well as being there for the proud moment Colin receives his award, Rita, Eamon, Claudine et al will be in Manhattan to give Colin moral and physical support as he will coming out of rehab that week. I wish Colin all the best.
