Senator David Norris Is Guest Speaker at Council’s Gala MidSummer Dinner
in Dublin Castle on Friday, June 24, 2011

Senator David Norris will be the Guest Speaker at the Council’s Gala MidSummer Dinner in Dublin Castle on Friday, June 24, 2011
New York, NY: May 31, 2011  The noted Joycean scholar, accomplished public speaker, Irish civil rights campaigner, gay activist, independent politician and current front-runner in the 2011 election for the Presidency in Ireland, Senator David Norris, will be the Guest Speaker at the Ireland-U.S. Council’s black-tie Gala MidSummer Dinner to be held Friday, June 24 in Dublin Castle.

Senator Norris is a former senior lecturer in the English Department at Trinity College Dublin and has been a member of Ireland’s Senate, Seanad Éireann, since 1987. He is a prominent member of the Church of Ireland and was the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in Ireland.

He was the principal organizer of the 1982 Joyce Centenary Celebrations in Dublin and has been credited with “rehabilitating James Joyce in once-disapproving Irish eyes".

The Ireland-U.S. Council was incorporated in 1962 by business leaders in America and Ireland. A principal objective is to encourage business links between America and Ireland, North & South. In pursuit of its mission, the Council, among other activities, operates scholarship programs, undertakes various publishing initiatives and frequently hosts seminar platforms and other business-oriented events in Ireland and in America.

Council members and guests @ €250 per person.
