The American Ireland Fund Chicago Leadership Forum Dinner
On, Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016, the Regional Advisory Board of The American Ireland Fund Chicago and special guests assembled for a Leadership Forum Dinner at The Chicago Cut Steakhouse.
The guest speakers were Rev. Sean D. McGraw, C.S.C., Assistant Professor of Political Science and Fellow of the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies, University of Notre Dame and Dr. Patrick Griffin, Chair of the History Department and Madden-Hennebry Professor of History, University of Notre Dame.
In anticipation of the yearlong commemoration of the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising, Doctors McGraw and Griffin presented a brief overview of the historic event and a preview of 1916-The Irish Rebellion – a landmark documentary series selected by The Irish Government to be a centerpiece of its commemoration of the centenary.
This gathering also allowed us to welcome the newest member of the Chicago Regional Advisory Board-Mr. Matt Moore.
This Dinner is part of a series of AIF Leadership Forum events held annually in Chicago.
