At a recent Banquet in honour of the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins, at Guildhall on 9 April 2014, the President viewed a display of folios from the Great Parchment Book.
On the President’s right is the Governor of the Irish Society, Simon D’Olier Duckworth, DL, CC and on his left is the President’s wife. On the left hand of the President’s wife is the Lord Mayor’s Consort. The Lord Mayor is partially obscured behind the President. In the second case is the Irish Society Charter of 1667.
