In a joint appeal to the public, Crosscare, which is based in Ireland, and the Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers in the U.S., have said people should only send in their applications via the official site. “Not only are immigrants unnecessarily giving their money and their personal information to private companies, but often no application is actually filed for them and they lose their opportunity to submit an entry,” said Sheila Gleeson, director of the Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers. She said the centers were seeing an increasing number of Irish immigrants arriving in all major cities, and urged anyone thinking of going to the U.S. to avail of legal means to allow them to stay. In New York, public informational seminars will take place with specific emphasis on the lottery during the month of October. The Emerald Isle will host one at its office in Queens (59-26 Woodside Avenue, Woodside) on Wednesday, October 13 at 7 p.m. The following evening the Emerald Isle will host a seminar at its Bronx office (4275 Katonah Avenue, Woodlawn) also at 7 p.m. On Tuesday, October 26 there will be a seminar at St. Patrick’s Church, Archway Room, 511 4th Avenue, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
