Message from the Irish Ambassador


It is a great pleasure to greet the members and express my strong support for the work of The Irish Network-DC. IN-DC has become an important presence in the Irish-American Community in the Washington area since your foundation in 2010. In that short time you have made huge strides in connecting the different constituencies that make the fabric of Irish America so welcoming and so warm.

I share your pride in the fact that your members come from all walks of life and are both Irish and American-born while others have been drawn to join IN-DC through positive experiences of studying or working in Ireland. Your connections reach across the spectrum of economic, business, politics and social life and your efforts bring continued credit to the hard work and achievement that has long characterized the Irish in America.

Your umbrella organization, Irish Network-USA has also been growing throughout the United States and now has nineteen chapters with more planned. It is tribute to the success of the early chapters that this growth has been so dynamic. It is heartening to know that there is a national organization to foster Irish connections and to welcome and support new members.

With the help of my colleagues at the Irish Embassy I look forward to maintaining the excellent working relationship we enjoy with IN-DC.

Dan Mulhall

Ambassador of Ireland
