Working in the field of marketing and public relations to the Irish American community, Anita Daly specializes in entertainment at her firm Daly Communications, LLC.
The fifth generation Irish American has roots in counties Clare and Cork, and travels to Ireland regularly.
“Because I work in Irish entertainment, I would not be in business if it were not for my Irish heritage,” says Daly. “My family came over before the Famine and worked hard to raise their families and we were taught not ever to forget them. So we took step-dancing classes, went to Catholic schools, we marched in the St. Patrick’s Day parade, and listened to Carmel Quinn records.
“I believe this gave us a great foundation and taught us a love and respect for our family and ancestors. And who could not love the music of the Irish.”
Daly, a founding member of the Women in Music organization, has represented acts as diverse as Celtic Woman, the Chieftains, the Pogues, the Saw Doctors, Finbar Furey and many others.
