The Long Island Congressman was the most outspoken major politician on Northern Ireland for decades and was very close to Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams. President Reagan refused to meet with him at a Long Island event as a result.
King was on hand to greet Adams when he arrived at Kennedy Airport on his historic visit in 1994. He is also a former grand marshal of the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Tipperary-born Kelly is a very successful businessman as CEO of Teneo Holdings in New York, and also is a former economic envoy to Northern Ireland under the Obama administration.
Kelly played a key role in advancing investment by U.S. companies in Northern Ireland as economic envoy. He received the Ellis Island Medal in 2012 in recognition of his Irish efforts.
She’s one of the greatest musicians and personalities in the history of Irish music in America and is the founder of the popular group Cherish the Ladies. Born in New York of Irish parents, she became the first American to win the Senior All-Ireland Championship on the tin whistle. She has since then gained many other awards, including being the youngest member ever inducted into the Irish-American Musicians Hall of Fame and the recipient of the Wild Geese Award.
