Bono in Italy, Ali joins Adi at Special Olympics ball
Istill haven’t found the entree I’m looking for? Bono’s better half, Ali Hewson (right), was at the Special Olympics charity Ball at the Intercontinental hotel in Ballsbridge last weekend. Looking goddess-like as ever, she arrived on her own but joined her VBF Adi Roche at Table 25. There were over 350 guests — Ian Dempsey and wife Ger among them — in attend- ance for this great night for a great organisation, to mark 40 years of the Special Olympics last Friday. Ali’s husband Bono was away in Italy working on his day job with U2 in Milan.
Still on matters pop, Louis Walsh lunched in the Intercontinental last Friday with Westlife and 2FM DJ Nicky Byrne. The Louis was also in for a midday feast in the same hotel on Tuesday.
