The Irish American Cultural Institute celebrated it’s 40th anniversary at Dublin Castle, Ireland on October 29. Over 140 guests attended the dinner, including President McAleese.
The organization was founded by Dr. Eoin McKiernan, then a professor of English at the College of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1962, to promote Irish and Irish American cultures.
Several years ago John P. Walsh, Sr. took over as chairman and CEO of the Institute and has taken the organization to new heights. ♦
