It's Election Night 2012 and Democrats Abroad Ireland will be watching the returns all night long. We will have the Knightsbridge Bar at the Arlington Hotel on Bachelor's Walk to ourselves from 11:00 PM on. This is one of the biggest bars in town. There will be big screens and loads of televisions showing the returns. There will be a €5 - €10 food menu on offer all night. A limited number of discounted rooms with a late checkout are available for €55 - just mention that you're with Democrats Abroad. Ring the Arlington on 01-804-9100.
Attendees must arrive by 12:30 AM. There is no charge for this event but a ticket is required. Be sure to print out your ticket and bring it with you. Each ticket will admit the ticket holder and one guest. The Arlington will accommodate us from 10:00 PM on and the bar will be ours beginning at 11:00.
This will be THE place in Ireland to watch the election returns.
Democrats Abroad Ireland
Democrats Abroad Ireland are a diverse group of US citizens from many backgrounds - American-born, Irish returned emigrants from the US, and people from elsewhere - working towards the election of Democratic candidates.
We engage in voter registration, fundraising, phone-banking, and other strategies to strengthen the Democratic party. We meet monthly to plan, encourage voter registration for American citizens all across Ireland, and discuss topics of the day. And we have quite a bit of fun along the way too.
If you are an American citizen, you're welcome to join us! First - register to vote at www.votefromabroad.org, and second - join Democrats Abroad!
