Some Award!

A Limerick man has been awarded an honourary CBE by the Queen of England.

David Dilger the chief executive of Greencore, is the second Irish business man to receive such an award.

A CBE or Commander of the British Empire ranked higher than an MBE or OBE in the British honours system.

Mr Dilger was presented with the award in recognition of his contribution to the British food industry at a ceremony at the British Embassy in Dublin.

I really don't understand why an Irishman would want to accept such an award from the British Queen. I mean, what's the point?
