The President's Message

It was back in 1962 that, in preparation for the visit of President John F. Kennedy to Ireland the following year, two organizations were created as a measure to build institutional form around a structure to improve the relations between America and Ireland.

One was dedicated to cultural relations - the American Irish Foundation, which has since merged into the American Ireland Fund. Your Council was the other and was aimed at building business bonds between America and Ireland.

We cherish the shared commitments that connect us to our Council mission. During the past year, the Council has enjoyed outstanding support from members and from many benefactors, patrons and sponsors. On behalf of the Council's Board and the entire membership of the organization throughout the United States and in all parts of Ireland, we offer thanks for the support we continue to receive.
