Dateline Irish on Echoes of Erin
with Diane Byrnes
Attached is Dateline Irish for tomorrow, May 31 – the end of another month. The Ireland Report comes to us from Belfast with Mairtin O’Muilleoir, you can read his blog at www.newbelfast.com - he usually sends it out on Sunday. This segment is sponsored by The Knights of Equity with Michael Culhane as Worthy Sir Knight. Thank you Mike and the Knights for your continued support, especially during these rough times.
The topic for ‘The Top of the Hour Moment’ is on Profiles in Courage Award, acknowledging so many workers helping so many who are sick with the Corona Virus. This segment is sponsored by The Irish Society for Education and Charity. My thanks to you as well.
Ladies and Gentlemen, so many of you have responded to my call for help, I am so grateful. Yes, Echoes of Erin is still at risk, it is a little further out than last week.
On Thursday, June 4, a virtual town hall will be hosted by Friends of Sinn Fein at 7pm. They are asking for questions about the Irish unity referendum and what we Americans can do to help bring this about. Questions need to be submitted in advance. Below is information about accessing the town hall on social media. Please submit/post questions this way: go to the comments section of the FOSF facebook page and add them in the Comments section. You may be able to do something similar on Twitter.
Please do not forget to join us for a discussion on Irish Unity with Gerry Adams and former Congressman Joe Crowley on June 4th at 7:00pm EST. Professor Christine Kinealy will be moderating the discussion. Please share this email with your organizations, friends and family. Below are links to Facebook, Twitter YouTube where the Conference can be viewed live.
Please keep in your prayers Rich O'Malley and his family on the passing of his wife Davida O’Malley who passed last Sunday May 24. Due to the restrictions in society there was no viewing. Rich O’Malley is such a tremendous help in all things Irish in our community as a member and officer with the Ancient Order of Hibernians and his involvement in Veteran’s affairs. May Davida O’Malley rest in peace. My condolences Rich.
OK I think this is it for today. Happy reading and stay well.
