Centre was worth wait

OUR new Dublin Convention Centre has been a long time in the making and dogged by controversy but it was worth the wait.

The official opening attracted many colourful figures, not least former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern engulfed in an hug with developer Johnny Ronan.

The stunning building can hold up to 8,000 delegates and hopefully will provide a massive boost to the capital through conferences and other business spin-offs.
