Dana Rosemary Scallon is joined by friends from the worlds of politics and entertainment for the launch of her autobiography at Stormont.

In 1970 Dana was Ireland's first Eurovision Song Contest winner with 'All Kinds of Everything’. Since then Dana Rosemary Scallon has been a Presidential candidate and a Member of the European Parliament (MEP).

At a reception in Stormont, Northern Ireland First Minister the Reverend Ian Paisley launches Dana’s autobiography also titled ‘All Kinds of Everything’. The pair got to know each other during their five years together in the European Parliament between 1999 and 2004.

Afterwards he was very kind, very open to me.

Among the guests attending the launch are Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness and Bishop Edward Daly, the Bloody Sunday priest with the white handkerchief.

Priests, nuns and clergymen mingled; Johnny Logan was there and Frank Carson and Albert Reynolds and John Hume.

The Reverent Ian Paisley of the Democratic Unionist Party has never seen such an eclectic gathering at the Parliament Buildings in Belfast,

I have met some people who I have wanted to meet for years but I never thought I’d meet them at Stormont, I thought I might meet them at the Battle of the Boyne.

‘All kinds of everything’ is co-written by Ken Murray and published by Gill & Macmillan.
