The Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate, in collaboration with the Irish Consulate in Boston and the Edward M. Kennedy Institute at Maynooth University, presented 100 Years of Freedom: Ireland Then and Now in honor of the Irish centenary. We reflected on the Irish cultural identity after the 1916 rebellion as well as the current state of the Ireland-US relationship, particularly in Boston.

The program featured a keynote address by former Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern and a panel discussion moderated by Kevin Cullen of The Boston Globe.

Panelists

  • Former Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern
  • Rev. Dr. Gary Mason, Director of “Rethinking Conflict”
  • Former Massachusetts Senate President Therese Murray
