Famine Echoes: Ireland and the United States

Bill Fahey attended this event and reported back that it was very informative and a huge success.

Held in New York during the month of October, the event attracted many renowned speakers who spoke with obvious authority on an Gorta Mor.

I would like to get more details and also the speakers bios, in an electronic format, to publish more detail. For now, here is a list of the speakers:

Patricia Harty

Gerard MacAtasney

Sean Cahill

Mary Pat Kelly

Martin O’Muilleoir

Christine Kinealy

Sinead McCoole

Jim Cullen

Henry Mc Nally

Michael Patrick MacDonald

It was announced that two organizers of the event are forming the Irish Diaspora Committee, irishdiaspora@live.com.   Co-founded by Owen Rodgers & Deanna Slattery.
