Philadelphia Leadership Forum with An Taoiseach Enda Kenny

On Friday, October 12th, a group of top supporters of the Philadelphia Chapter of The American Ireland Fund gathered at the historic Union League of Philadelphia for a morning of networking and to share an intimate breakfast with An Taoiseach Enda Kenny; Ireland’s Ambassador to the United States, Michael Collins and Ireland’s Consul General in New York, Noel Kilkenny.
The Prime Minister greeted the supporters and shared his heartfelt thanks for their commitment to the future of Ireland as the country continues to recover from the global recession.

After finishing his remarks, Mr. Kenny opened up the floor to a spirited question and answer session and left the Philadelphia supporters feeling confident about the future of Ireland thanks in part to their support of The Ireland Funds Promising Ireland campaign.

Special thanks to New York Deputy Consul General Peter Ryan for his help in facilitating the arrangements for the Prime minister to meet our supporters for this breakfast.
