IT'S DINE-IEL DAY-LEWIS; Hollywood stars treated to finest Irish produce at actor's charity gala meal; EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: SAM HAMILTON Showbiz Reporter

HOLLYWOOD legends will be munching on the best of Irish produce at Daniel Day-Lewis' charity gala.

Jurassic Park director Steven Spielberg is among the VIPs going to the glitzy five-star banquet at the Burlington Hotel this Sunday in aid of the Wicklow Hospice.

But with 900 of the world's biggest celebrities attending, bosses have put every effort into making sure the guests are all delighted with the food.

And the Irish Mirror can reveal the three-course luxury menu for the event, which Bono, The Edge and Oscar winner Sally Field will be eating.

Insiders have revealed kitchen staff will be working around the clock on Sunday to make sure all the guests are served at around 9pm.

A source said: "It's going to be an extremely tough job for those working in the Burlington, but there's no room for anything to go wrong.

"This is a massive event - and probably the biggest happening in Ireland this year - so there's a huge amount of pressure."

The Irish Mirror can also reveal a massive guest list still exists for the event, which coincides with the European premiere of Lincoln, for which Day-Lewis won a Golden Globe this week.

Insiders revealed they are working with a waiting list of 600 people, many of which are well-known Irish actors and actresses - despite tables of 10 costing [euro]1,600.

A source said: "It seems to be the most oversubscribed VIP event that Ireland has ever seen. Organisers have had calls from the agents of huge numbers of actors from well-known soaps begging for them to get in, but it just isn't happening."

Guests will be entertained by a performance from Bono and The Edge, while Twentieth Century Fox chief Cameron Saunders will also be attending.
