Gonzalo Ceballos welcomes the guests

It was the first travel trade event for the new Spanish Ambassador to Ireland, H.E. Jose Maria Rodriquez Coso, who welcomed the guests and spoke  in Irish initially. He said that everybody in Ireland is acquainted with the Costa del Sol as the place to relax and enjoy. He also quoted Oscar Wilde, so he is really into his new posting.
