Failte Irish American Hall of Fame

A Bright Future

No doubt that the 2010 census will tell us that a significant part of the American population continues to identify with their Irish roots.  More importantly, however, is the expression that the bond between Ireland and America brings to the global community.  We see this when young Irish dancers, six generations removed from the Great Hunger, travel back to Ireland to compete in the All Ireland dance championships.  We see this when Irish born actors such as Gabriel Byrne and Pierce Brosnan play American characters in television dramas and movies.  We see this when an Irish singer named Bono can fill every stadium from New York to California. 
The Irish American Hall of Fame will be a place where we can preserve the story of those that make a difference in American culture and American life.  We celebrate them and look forward to continuing to tell their stories.
