Shawn McCreesh is on the editorial staff of The New York Times opinion section and works in the Washington bureau. His writing has also appeared in Rolling Stone and New York magazine.

McCreesh joined fellow New York Times writer Maureen Dowd for a live stream discussion right here on IrishCentral in the lead up to the US presidential election last month.

You can join in with other Irish and Irish Americans to hear McCreesh talk about Election 2020, his observations from the campaign, and his views on the future. 

There will also be an opportunity for questions, so come ready to engage!

The Consulate says it is very much looking forward to seeing you this Friday, November 6 for its monthly networking breakfast, which is now taking place via Zoom due to the pandemic.

Roll out of bed (depending on where you are, of course!), make the coffee or tea, throw on a few Irish sausages, if you are lucky enough to have them, and Zoom with the Irish Consulate in New York and Shawn McCreesh.
