Donlon-Farry, Dr. Eibhlin
Private practitioner in psychotherapy and professor at Empire State College in Nanuet, New York, Dr. Eibhlin Donlon-Farry is also on the board of directors at the Aisling Irish Community Center in Yonkers.
After achieving a bachelor of social science from University College Dublin, the Longford-born Donlon-Farry continued her education in New York, earning a master of social work from Hunter College School of Social Work and a doctor of social welfare from Adelphi University School of Social Work.
Now married to CBS News editor Paul Farry, Donlon-Farry has two children, Connor and Aideen. Donlon-Farry goes home to Ireland every year to visit family in Longford town. Her ethnic identity has colored her world in many ways, but it’s the small things that she appreciates about being Irish.
“Still calling Ireland home, drinking Barry’s tea with like-minded tea drinkers, feeling the warmth and pride on St. Patrick’s Day, understanding the Irish ‘lingo,’ having tapes of Donal Lunny, Clannad and others in my car, and bringing a sense of Irish perspective in my clinical work with Irish clients are in short what my Irish heritage means to me,” says Donlon-Farry.
