Generation Ireland goes Stateside: NYC October 2016
Our team visited New York City and had a fantastic reception at Tourism Ireland headquarters.
We had a very successful meeting in their amazing boardroom and we were delighted with the enthusiasm we were greeted with ( and lovely cups of tea!). We had lots of positive feedback and valuable inputs from all the staff and management.
It was wonderful to talk with the younger members of the team as Irish American children themselves, their first visit home to the land of their grandparents and great-grandparents. The memories the described were so vivid and the joy to be seen in their eyes as they relayed these stories was so strong, it strengthened my belief in the importance of our Cultural Enrichment Program, for the children that have yet to take that amazing first journey back home.
