Irish Language Fundraiser – 23 February 2018

We welcome friends of the CUNY Institute for Irish-American Studies and LehmanGaeilge – The Irish Language Program at Lehman College to join us for our biennial fundraiser. A buffet dinner will be enjoyed in the private party room at Rory Dolan’s Restaurant on the Bronx/Yonkers border. As in the past, we will once again honor colleagues of ours for their years of service in promoting Irish Studies in the New York City area. “Our Person of the Year” will be Bernadette Broderick, our “Teacher of the Year” will be Paul Ferris, and our “Friend to Irish Studies” will be Lynne Van Voorhis. Our last dinner drew about 100 attendees and helped raise funds for study abroad scholarships for our students, for our speakers series, and for curriculum development in Irish Studies. John Redmond, Kate Foster, and Noel Cotter will join us once again in music and dance. Those interested in purchasing tickets or dinner journal advertisements are invited to download the attached flyer [feb23ad2018f]. Go raibh maith agaibh!
