The Building Campaign for the new home for the Irish Arts Center in New York City has been going on for several years and now it is on its way to completion! It is so exciting and rewarding to see this project realized after all of the hard work and dedication of the staff, supporters and fans of the Irish Arts Center!

The Irish Arts Center has alerted members and others interested in the Center’s activities about the Groundbreaking Spirit of Ireland Gala, which is scheduled for October 19 in New York City. Gabriel is, as usual, an Honorary Chair for this event and he will be joined by his friend, Liam Neeson, this year. I received an email:

Dear Stella,

After years of visioning, planning, and growth, we finally break ground on Phase 1 of construction on the New Irish Arts Center this fall.

To mark this historic achievement, we will celebrate with a special commemorative Groundbreaking Spirit of Ireland Gala on Friday, October 19th at Cipriani 42nd Street. We will be joined on the night by a number of special guests and honorees, including Irish Arts Center Honorary Chairs Liam Neeson and Gabriel Byrne.

We hope you will consider supporting our work by joining us at our most important fundraiser of the year in what is certainly the most important year ever for your Irish Arts Center.

For more information, or to join our Gala Leadership or Committee, please contact Pauline Turley at (212) 757-3318 x205 or pauline@irishartscenter.org, or Adam Lamberg at (212) 757-3318 x222 or adam@irishartscenter.org.

Your generosity will have a lasting impact as we start this exciting new chapter in the life of Irish Arts Center.

We look forward to seeing you on October 19th….and celebrating with you into the wee hours of the 20th!

Aidan Connolly
Executive Director

Pauline Turley
Vice Chair

So, mark your calendar, put that champagne on ice, and prepare to celebrate the new Home for the Irish Arts Center! If you can attend, share your experience with us. And you know there will be pictures from the event, so stay tuned! heart
