Nous avons eu la profonde tristesse d’apprendre la disparition du Comte Jean-Pierre DE LAUNOIT, ancien Président de la Fondation Alliance Française, Président du Concours Reine Elisabeth, et très cher ami de l’Alliance Française de Cork, qui s’est éteint le mercredi 12 novembre, 2014.

Nous avons été très honorés et émus de la présence de Jean-Pierre DE LAUNOIT à deux reprises à l’Alliance Française de Cork, lors de notre Festival du Film Français en 2007 et pour le Symposium européen en 2008, dont nous garderons toujours de très précieux souvenirs.

Nous serons à jamais reconnaissants de cet honneur ainsi que de son énorme contribution au développement et au rayonnement du réseau de l’Alliance Française, sans oublier son soutien constant au cours des années.

Toute l’équipe de l’Alliance Francaise de Cork se joint à moi pour transmettre nos plus sincères condoléances à la famille et aux proches de Jean-Pierre de LAUNOIT en ce moment de deuil.
