Citing Kevin Cullen, a columnist with the Boston Globe, for his decades-long coverage of events on the island of Ireland, especially in the North during troubled times and as the 1998 Good Friday Agreement came to pass, the Eire Society of Boston will award him its Gold Medal at a dinner and award ceremony on Sat., April 22, at 6 p.m. at the Seaport Boston Hotel.
An invitation to join the Society
The Eire Society is one of Boston's oldest Irish organizations. We promote knowledge of Irish culture through the encouragement of study in the arts, sciences, literature, language and history of Ireland; the contributions to civilization made by the Irish and those of Irish ancestry; networking between all Irish and Americans; and raising awareness of the actions made by the Irish for the advancement of American ideals. The Society is a non-political and non-sectarian organization, which throughout its history has welcomed people who share its concerns, regardless of their race, religion or ethnicity. We are a diverse mix of individuals of all ages and backgrounds, both American and Irish-born.
You are invited to become a member and join our spirited community!
We offer special events to promote appreciation and knowledge of Irish culture, arts, sciences, literature, language, music and history. Annually in spring, a person who exemplifies the best in Irish culture and achievement is honored at the elegant Gold Medal Banquet. Membership connects you with others who appreciate Irish culture, and is open to anyone who shares in the organization’s ideals. Members receive regular e-mail announcements keeping you abreast of local,regional and international happenings, and invitations to special events and discounted admission for selected programs.
