The American Ireland Fund Fetes Palm Beach Board Members at Emerald Isle Dinner Dance


(PALM BEACH, FL) The American Ireland Fund’s Annual Emerald Isle Dinner Dance took place recently at The Breakers and marked the organization’s 21st season in Palm Beach.  This year, The American Ireland Fund paid a special tribute to the Fund’s Palm Beach Board Members, who over the years, have contributed to the success of The American Ireland Fund’s presence in Palm Beach through their involvement and dedication.  

The gala evening, which drew more than 200 guests, began with a cocktail reception, followed by a dinner dance held in The Circle Ballroom with entertainment provided by Palm Beach Board member Hillie Mahoney’s son, Bob Merrill and the Sultans of Swing Orchestra.  The guests were welcomed by Kieran McLoughlin, President & CEO, The Worldwide Ireland Funds, and Loretta Brennan Glucksman, Chairman of The American Ireland Fund.


A special presentation by longtime AIF supporter, The Right Honorable Brian Mulroney, who was honored by The American Ireland Fund in 2003 was made to the Palm Beach Board Members, Christopher M. “Kip” Condron, Lore Moran Dodge, Sheila O’Malley Fuchs, Lesley King Grenier, James F. Higgins, Michael F. Jackson, Michele Kessler,
 Hillie Mahoney, Jack Manning, Thomas C. Quick
And Robert L. Reynolds.  Songwriter Christopher Mason wrote and performed a humorous song especially for the occasion that acknowledged each of the honorees, who were presented with framed editions of the lyrics.


The Palm Beach Emerald Isle Dinner Dance was the first public AIF event in support of a new campaign, Promising Ireland Campaign – an initiative to raise $100 million to assist Irish charities that was launched earlier this year. The Worldwide Ireland Funds announced that the campaign will help non-profit  organizations across the island of Ireland meet the challenge of increased demand for their services at a time of major reductions in resources. Anticipating growing need, the Funds began a quiet phase in 2009 and have successfully raised over $40 million towards the $100 million goal they aim to raise by 2013. Fundraising for the campaign will be carried out across the Funds’ global network with chapters in the United States, Ireland, Great Britain, Monaco, Australia, New Zealand, China, Singapore, Canada, France, Germany and Japan. 


The mission of The American Ireland Fund is to be the largest worldwide network of people of Irish ancestry and friends of Ireland dedicated to raising funds to support programs of peace and reconciliation, arts and culture, education, and community development throughout the island of Ireland.
A portion of the Dinner proceeds will support the Irish Georgian Society’s campaign to save the Dublin Civic Assembly Building, an important and historical Georgian building in the heart of Dublin.  Information about The American Ireland Fund can be found at
