Anyone dealing with Northern Ireland for the past 20 years will have come across the name Fay Devlin, the co-founder and CEO of Eurotech, a multi-million-dollar New York firm specializing in high end interior construction. A strong supporter of the Gerry Adams and Sinn Fein strategy as the way forward in Northern Ireland, the County Tyrone-born businessman has helped raise millions of dollars in funds to support the party's efforts.
In May, 1995, Devlin was one of the key people behind setting up Friends of Sinn Fein U.S. The organization came into being when President Clinton decreed that Sinn Fein was a legitimate political party and as such should be allowed to raise funds in the U.S. The Friends of Sinn Fein U.S., who in addition to fundraising, have become the voice of the party in the U.S., are dedicated to helping Sinn Fein achieve peace, justice and the aims of the Good Friday Agreement. Fay is married to Rosemary, who is also from County Tyrone, and they have five sons.
