At Friday's breakfast we heard about a number of upcoming Irish events in the area, perfectly timed for Irish American Heritage Month, including IrishCentral's FarePlate food and drink festival on March 11.
We heard from Ted Smyth of Glucksman Ireland House of Studies at New York University on the fascinating results of a survey Glucksman Ireland House conducted last year in partnership with IrishCentral and Amárach Research. The survey was a comprehensive exploration of habits, preferences, passions, and interests among Irish Americans under the age of 45.
Deputy Consul General Anna McGillicuddy then led a Q+A with Smyth about the survey results.
