In 1969, Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong became the first person to set foot on the Moon.
He was awarded a Congressional Space Medal of Honor for his efforts and has been decorated by 17 countries in total. Shortly after Apollo 11, Armstrong announced that he would not be flying into space again.
For one year he served as Deputy Associate Administrator for Aeronautics, NASA Headquarters and then went on to teach at the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Cincinnati between 1971 and 1979. From 1982 until 1992 he was chairman of Computing Technologies for Aviation Inc.
Armstrong and his wife Carol were guests of honour at the dinner during their visit to Ireland on 19th April 1997, during which they opened an exhibition on Space Exploration at the Kerry Museum in Tralee.
The dinner was hosted by Dick Spring, the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister of Ireland at the time.
The menu is accompanied by a letter of provenance from Ann Golden, the wife of Seamus Chamberlain the Irish representative to the European Space Agency at the time. It's in fine condition and signed during a time when Armstrong was famed for his refusal to sign autographs.
